NSF Earthscope Northern California Lidar Workshop
March 16-19, 2006       [3 p.m. March 16 (Thursday) - morning March  
19 (Sunday)]
Marconi Center (north of Pt Reyes Station, CA)

Workshop to develop plans and priorities to obtain, process and make  
available LIDAR (ALSM) DEM for the plate boundary structures in  
northern (and eastern) California

Particulars:   ~ 30 persons (dictated by funding and venue size) -  
NSF support will cover on-site costs at workshop (room and board) and  
most (if not all) of the travel costs of participants

There will be Overview Presentations, Posters and break-out working  
groups to develop targets, priorities and science goals. For example,  
one possible outcome would be the identification and initiation of a  
set of proposals to NSF Earthscope (and others) to obtain LIDAR data  
for key regions and/or to address key processes associated with the  
plate boundary.

If you are interested in participating please email a 1-page (PDF  
format preferred) ‘appplication’ including:

Name, Address, Position, contact information, approximate travel  
costs to Conference Site (note we will try to coordinate transport  
from SFO to Marconi)

Also please include a title/synopsis of a poster presentation you may  
make and identify any specific regions and/or plate boundary  
processes for which you wish to obtain LIDAR data in northern or  
eastern California. This will help ensure that all groups/interests  
are represented at the workshop. Overview presentations will cover  
aspects of LIDAR capabilities, examples of previous LIDAR  
acquisitions, and potential strategies for obtaining funding beyond NSF.

More information on the workshop will be posted on www.geodyn.psu.edu  
soon. In the meantime please email your indication of interest to
