Airborne Hydrographic LiDAR Workshop

Watershed Sciences, Inc. and Dewberry, in collaboration with the Pacific Northwest Aquatic Monitoring Partnership (PNAMP), are hosting a series of workshops June 4-8 to introduce the potential applications and benefits of green-wavelength airborne laser scanning (ALS) for shallow water bathymetry. A new suite of commercial small-footprint ALS systems are being developed to enable topo-bathymetric mapping in shallow coastal and riverine environments. This workshop will provide an overview of shallow water hydrographic ALS technology, green-lidar applications and performance in aquatic ecosystems, and testing of the new Riegl VQ-820-G ALS in the Pacific Northwest. Potential test sites for data acquisition in Fall 2012 will be discussed.
