Our next forum topic will be “Organizing and interpreting high resolution channel topographic data: A live demonstration of habitat analyses using the River Bathymetry Toolkit (RBT) and wavelet transforms of high resolution channel DEMs" presented by Dr. Jim McKean.
The use of the RBT with LiDAR for habitat research was of high interest to participants in the recent series of workshops on the new LiDAR commercial sensor. Dr. McKean's presentation (available at http://www.pnamp.org/document/3893) touched on topics for which we had requests for additional information.
Jim McKean is a Research Geomorphologist at the US Forest Service, Rocky Mountain Research Station, Boise.
His research interests are the biophysical ecology of stream channels, channel-hillslope interactions, and controls on the size, location and frequency of landslides. Much of his recent research has been using high resolution aquatic-terrestrial DEMs to interpret cross-environment process interactions.
