2013 AGU Session on LiDAR and High Resolution Topographic Data

Jul 8, 2013

Dear Colleagues,

We would like to invite you to submit an abstract to an exciting session at the 2013 AGU Fall Meeting in San Francsico, CA.

G002. 4D Topography: Detecting Changes to the Earth's Surface with Multi-Temporal, High-Resolution Topographic Data

This session will focus on innovative uses of multi-temporal, high-resolution topographic datasets to explore novel questions in tectonics and geomorphology. Particular emphasis in this session will be given to emerging methods such as airborne and terrestrial LiDAR, radar, RTK-GPS, multi-beam SONAR, and structure-from-motion photogrammetry. We seek abstracts that quantifying process rates to understand the mechanisms that drive earth processes. In addition, we encourage submissions that highlight solutions to technical challenges of high-resolution topography, such as best practices for differencing, co-registering datasets, and quantifying uncertainty. This session will be a good opportunity to showcase advances in new methods of gathering, processing, and analyzing high-resolution topography.

Conveners: Ed Nissen, Colorado School of Mines (enissen@mines.edu); Francis Rengers, University of Colorado (francis.rengers@colorado.edu); Christopher Crosby, UNAVCO (crosby@unavco.org)

The abstract submission deadline is August 6, 2013
