Mapping change at the Maunakea summit

Apr 26, 2018 7:00 PM

A Maunakea Speaker Series presentation by Dr. Ryan Perroy, University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo, Department of Geography and Environmental Science


The next scheduled program in the Maunakea Speaker Series will be held Thursday, April 26th from 7 pm to 8 pm at UH Hilo Wentworth Hall Room # 1.

Over the past five years Dr. Perroy and UH Hilo students compiled a time-series of high resolution topographic datasets to determine erosion rates and spatial patterns of geomorphic change across the upper 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.

Dr. Ryan L. Perroy is an 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.

The Maunakea Speaker Series is free and open to the public. On-campus parking is open and available without charge after 4:00 pm.
