Via email, a call for abstracts for an EGU 2012 session on terrestrial laser scanning (TLS) in geomorphology:
Terrestrial Laser Scanning (TLS) in Geomorphology- EGU 2012 (Vienna, 22-27 April 2012)
We would like to invite abstracts on the subject of Terrestrial Laser Scanning (TLS) in Geomorphology for a session at the European Geosciences Union General Assembly 2012 (Vienna, 22-27 April 2012). This is part of a larger session on 'High definition topography - data acquisition, modelling, interpretation' (GM2.1) convened by Dirk Rieke-Zapp (University of Bern), Alexander Reiterer (Technical University of Munich), Jim Chandler (Loughborough University), James Brasington (University of Canterbury), Mark Powell and Nick Tate (University of Leicester) and Damia Vericat (University of Lleida and Forestry and Technology Centre of Catalonia).
We welcome abstracts which:
1. Showcase recent applications of TLS in geomorphic contexts
2. Provide examples and good practice guidance on the collection and processing of TLS data in geomorphic contexts, and
3. Identify both the possibilities and constraints in using this technology for geomorphic research.
The session is supported by the ISPRS Commission V Working Group V/6 - "Close range morphological measurements for the Earth Sciences" and LiDARnet.
The papers presented at the EGU session will be considered for a special edition of an international journal that would be co-edited by James Brasington, Mark Powell, Nicholas Tate, and Damia Vericat. Information on abstract submission can be found at http://meetings.copernicus.org/egu2012/. The deadline for abstracts is January 17.
