Course Information | Imaging and Analyzing Southern California's Active Faults with High Resolution Topography

Dates: January 25 - 26, 2016

A Joint SCEC, OpenTopography, UNAVCO and EarthScope short course

Course information, presentations, and materials

High resolution topographic data has become an important tool for earthquake scientists to make detailed observations and model surface evolution. Within the last decade, several efforts have been made to collect high resolution topographic (HRT) data for active faults (e.g. The B4 project, EarthScope, and numerous NCALM and USGS projects). These datasets are freely available online through OpenTopography, a NSF funded data distribution portal. The active faulting community has taken great interest in these exciting datasets, using them to generate new and important insights into earthquake processes in Southern California. OpenTopography in partnership with the Southern California Earthquake Center, UNAVCO, and EarthScope will host a short course at Arizona State University on January 25-26, 2016. This 2-day course will highlight recent research results and provide beginner to intermediate training on airborne and terrestrial lidar, and Structure from Motion technology, point cloud and raster-based data processing, and active fault-oriented analysis. We will emphasize fault trace and geomorphic mapping, topographic differencing, integration with other geospatial data, and data visualization and analysis approaches. Participants will have opportunities to discuss their research with other participants and the instructors.
