Although in-situ measurements provide detailed measurements at specific locations, the ability to measure and observe from afar has proven particularly useful for understanding complex 1D, 2D, and 3D phenomena. In my research this has involved the use of LiDAR technology to measure dense elevation measurements and optical methods to infer information about the subaerial or subaqueous landscape. These dense datasets are key to understanding many complex spatio-temporal phenomena and below are a subset of the topics that I (collaboratively) have worked on in my career.
Beach and Dune Landscape Reconstruction Using Structure from Motion
Optical Estimation of Subtidal Bathymetry
