2010 GSA Annual Meeting - Applications of Airborne and Terrestrial Lidar

Jun 25, 2010

This GSA 2010 LiDAR session announcement went out this morning via various listservs. This session, coupled with the accompanying Pardee Keynote Symposium and the Terrestrial Laser Scanning: Applications in Geology and Geomorphology session that was announced previously, means that GSA is shaping up to be a great meeting for Earth science applications of LiDAR. I'll be giving a talk in the Pardee session. Hope to see you there!

We would like to draw your attention to the following Topical Session at the 2010 GSA Annual Meeting in Denver, Colorado (Oct. 31st - Nov. 3rd):

T32. Seeing the True Shape of Earth's Surface: Applications of Airborne and Terrestrial LiDAR in the Geosciences (Oral and Poster)

High-resolution lidar data are now becoming available over large areas of earth's surface. This session will examine how these highly detailed images of the landscape provide unprecedented opportunities for qualitative and quantitative analysis of earth processes. We invite presentations from any application of lidar in the geosciences. The session is being co-sponsored by the GSA Engineering Geology , Structural Geology and Tectonics, Quaternary Geology and Geomorphology, Sedimentary Geology , Geoinformatics, and Geophysics Divisions and will accompany a Pardee Keynote Symposium on the same topic.
