Fall AGU Special Session on Ground Based Geodetic Techniques and Science Applications

Aug 10, 2010

Session announcements for the fall American Geophysical Union (AGU) meeting in San Francisco are beginning to appear. The following session on ground based geodetic techniques includes an emphasis on terrestrial laser scanning:

Dear Colleagues:

We would like to bring to your attention the following special session on Ground Based Geodetic Techniques and Science Applications to be held at the 2010 Fall AGU Meeting in San Francisco, December 13 - 17:

Ground Based Geodetic Techniques and Science Applications
Ground-based geodesy is a rapidly expanding and evolving technology. Tools such as terrestrial laser scanners (TLS) and/or ground-based radars (GBR) promise to expand our detailed understanding of the fundamental processes that drive a broad range of spatial (3D) and temporal (4D) science applications. We invite contributions that discuss both the technical aspects of the technology and process-based geoscience studies using ground-based geodetic tools such as, but not limited to, TLS and GBR. What are the strengths, weaknesses, and limitations of the technologies? How is the technology being used to address static and dynamic scientific problems? We encourage contributions from a wide range of disciplines.


Best regards,

Benjamin Brooks, David Phillips, and Gerald Bawden - Session conveners
