Josh Roering, University of Oregon
Mountains, Earthquakes, and Landslides: Using Lasers to Peer Behind Cascadia's Green Veil

University of Oregon earth sciences professor Josh Roering will describe how using LiDAR (light detection and ranging) has enabled scientists to bypass the typical obstacles of difficult terrain and dense closed-canopy forests to map the surface of the Cascadia landscapes in amazing detail. These new discoveries add to the dynamic geologic history of Northern California, Oregon and Washington, and have profound implications for geologic hazards, habitat conservation, and natural resource management.
