LiDAR - Illuminating Earthquake Hazards


As part of a Southern California Earthquake Center (SCEC) and OpenTopography collaboration, Sarah Robinson (ASU M.S. student) and Andrew Whitesides (USC undergraduate) - supported by SCEC's ACCESS program (Advancement of Cyberinfrastructure Careers through Earthquake System Science) and in collaboration with numerous SCEC scientists and the OpenTopography team - have produced a new educational video entitled LiDAR - Illuminating Earthquake Hazards. The video provides an introduction to both LiDAR technology as well as the earthquake science that is being done with the data. OpenTopography is a National Science Foundation-funded data facility hosted at the San Diego Supercomputer Center that provides a cyberinfrastructure platform to enable access to LiDAR topography for Earth science researchers and educators.
