Measuring Coastal Slope Movements From The Air

December 1, 2015 — Carlos Gonzales from 3D Laser Mapping will explore the capabilities of combining airborne laser scanning and photography as an approach to measure coastal slope movements, during his talk at MMT in Sydney, Australia. (9-11th December, 2015)

Successful measurement of coastal areas is crucial to determine the potential impact upon local infrastructure, and to take action accordingly. Finding a reliable system to get these measurements is then also of equal importance.

The insights included in the presentation are based around a case study from a section of North Yorkshire coast in the UK. The customer is Durham University, who is using the SiteMonitor solution for efficient monitoring, outside of a mining context. Here, laser and photographic data is captured at the same time during two airborne surveys, performed approximately nine months apart.

Carlos will discuss the two main techniques currently used for coastal monitoring (laser scanning and photographic surveys) noting their individual advantages and limitations. Through combining surface elevation changes derived from laser data and displacement velocities calculated from images, it is possible to quantify both the volume of displaced material and the rate and direction of displacement.

 

Come along at 2:45pm (Mathews Theatre C) on Friday 11th December to hear the fascinating demonstration of airborne laser scanning and photography working together to provide comprehensive measurements of slope instability.
