Aquisition Initiative and Workshop
Acquisition Initiative set out to acquire airborne Lidar
data to study the hydrologic, geomorphologic and geochemical processes
at six Critical Zone Observatories. This workshop will be an
opportunity to discuss the Lidar taken at the six CZO sites in terms of:
- Familiarity with what Lidar is and what it provides.
- What products are available from this remote sensing
technology and their usefulness
- Research and activities being conducted by the CZO teams in
relation to the Lidar data
- Collaboration possibilities for cross site analysis
You are encouraged to give a presentation on your research and
activities related to Lidar and CZO.
Please register for this event below, and, if you wish to present,
provide the title of your presentation.
