#53-Coastal Applications of Airborne LIDAR (2009) [Brock & Purkis]


-LIDAR (Light Detection And Ranging) is an optical remote sensing technology that measures properties of scattered light to find range and/or other information of a distant target. In geology and seismology a combination of aircraft-base LIDAR and GPS have evolved into an important tool for detecting faults and for measuring uplift. For example, NASA's Airborne Topographic Mapper is used extensively to monitor glaciers and perform coastal change analysis. In this JCR Special Issue, several coastal applications of LIDAR are addressed, including applications in geomatics, geomorphology, and remote sensing. Dr. John Brock, remote sensing expert with the USGS Coastal & Marine Geology Program, served as one of the principal editors for this collection of papers.
