Always been curious about how we develop our methods for 3D/4D change analysis?
Then check out our new video on high-resolution and high-frequency monitoring of a rock glacier in Austria!
Link to video

LiDAR datasets of the rock glacier provide the basis for the development of 3D and 4D methods for geomorphic change quantification within different research projects [...]

The last days of field work in Erg Chebbi continued at the star dune to wrap up final tasks: filling gaps in the data, adding some dune arms to the ground penetrating radar data, … All data acquisition at the star dune was concluded successfully, although the group was off to a late start. The [...]

During the first three days of the field course in Erg Chebi, data collection focussed on the star dune with groups of students applying different techniques of geophysical and topographic surveying. Today, data was checked to plan the remaining three field days. A recap of this intermediate data revision will follow. For today, we’d like [...]

Can you imagine how much sand is being moved on the beach in the course of a week? Did you ever observe truckloads of sand being transported on the beach in the absence of storms and bulldozers? It is hardly possible to estimate to the naked eye, but can be quantified with permanent terrestrial laser [...]
