Mapping change at the Maunakea summit

Location: UH Hilo Wentworth Hall Room #1

A Maunakea Speaker Series presentation by Dr. Ryan Perroy, Associate Professor in the Department of Geography & Environmental Science at the University of Hawaii at Hilo and Director of the Spatial Data Analysis & Visualization (SDAV) Research Laboratory.

Over the past five years Dr. Perroy and his students at UH Hilo have compiled a time-series of high resolution topographic datasets to determine erosion rates and spatial patterns of geomorphic change across the upper Maunakea summit region. These efforts included terrestrial laser scanning, repeat flights of small unmanned aerial systems, ground photography, and traditional surveying measures via total station and differential GPS. This talk will share some of the results of this work.
