Evaluation of surface processes requires efficient means to quantify their effect. Despite the span and three-dimensionality of these processes, they are usually monitored using land surveying or naive 2D image interpretation. Therefore, the results are partial in terms of coverage and detail, and are mostly qualitative. We study in this paper the application of high resolution airborne laser scanning data for detection and characterisation of geomorphic processes. The Dead Sea region, where… CONTINUE READING
