VISITING SPEAKER GEOPHYSICAL SOCIETY OF KUTZTOWN UNIVERSITY
Thursday, Sept. 22
11 - 11:50 a.m.
104 BH
Dr. Sujith Ravi (Temple University) will present a talk titled "Recognizing the Impact of Wildfires on Ecosystems - Use of LiDAR and Rare Earth Element Tracers" to the public on Thursday, September 22, from 11-11:50 a.m. in 104 Boehm Science Building.  LiDAR (Light Detection And Ranging) is an airborne laser scanning system that maps the elevation of the Earth's surface with millimeter precision. Dr. Ravi uses LiDAR to map soil microtopography and vegetation structure. Rare Earth Elements (REE) are heavy metals that occur in vanishingly small concentrations, but which are characteristic of different soil and rock types. Dr. Ravi uses REE data to quantify and track soil erosion.

This talk is part of the Geophysical Society of Kutztown University's fall speaker series. Please contact Dr. Laura Sherrod or Margariete Malenda for more information on this or other talks in this series.
