A Portal to High-Resolution Topography Data and Tools
Posted on Tue, July 03, 2012 by Chris Crosby in Meetings
Yet another AGU 2012 session on lidar, high-resolution topography, and change detection that could be of interest to the OpenTopography community:
EP023: Quantifying Hillslope and Fluvial Processes Through Change Detection Using High-Resolution, Multi-Temporal Topographic Data
Increasingly geomorphologists are using repeat topographic datasets to quantify rates of geomorphic processes. Repeat topographic surveys from aerial, ground, and boat-based platforms are making possible high-resolution change detection over large spatial extents thanks to technologies like LiDAR, Structure-from-Motion, Photogrammetry, Multi-beam SONAR, and rtkGPS. This session will focus on the use of repeat topographic surveys to quantify hillslope and fluvial processes. We solicit abstracts that use high-resolution change detection to quantify geomorphic processes, process mechanics, and to explain landscape evolution.

Abstracts are due Wednesday 8 August 2012 at: http://fallmeeting.agu.org/2012/
