Terrestrial Laser Scanning and Structure from Motion Learning Resources for Students, Instructors, and Researchers Structure from motion (SfM) photogrammetry and terrestrial laser scanning (TLS) are two valuable geodetic methods for obtaining high resolution topographic data for a wide range of applications from hazards assessments to quantifying geomorphic processes. However, sometimes the knowledge needed to implement the technologies can be a barrier. Now an undergraduate teaching module is available online.

GPS observations of post-seismic deformation from the 3 Sep 2016, Mw 5.8, Pawnee, Oklahoma, earthquake This project came about quickly after the 3 September 2016, Mw 5.8, Pawnee, Oklahoma, earthquake. It is collaboration between the University of Memphis, University of Oklahoma (OU), and Oklahoma Geological Survey (OGS). The project deployed eight GPS stations around the causative Sooner Lake fault, in order to measure the years-long relaxation of the crust (postseismic deformation) after the September earthquake.
