News of Interest to Members

The following news items may be of interest to members:


"Laser imaging in the earth sciences" at the 2015 AGU-CGU-GAC-MAC Joint Assembly (3-7 May 2015, Montreal).

The session description is as follows:

Laser imaging is providing an interesting new perspective for several applications in the earth sciences. This session will cover laser imaging at different scales from micron-scale (e.g. detailed imaging of the surface of geomaterials) to meter-scale (e.g. imaging road cuts and outcrops), panoramic-scale (e.g. imaging transportation corridors and mountain slopes) and planetary scale (e.g. remote sensing of the atmosphere). It will feature different sensors such as LiDARs, triangulation-based cameras, and bathymetric laser systems. Abstracts are invited on laser instrumentation and calibration, mapping, image analytics, and applications case histories.


We would like to encourage you to join us and submit abstracts on your recent research on this topic.
The abstract submission deadline is Wednesday 14 January 2015.
Please follow this link to the abstract submission portal:
