OERA Webinar Series – Tim Webster, NSCC

March 22, 2018 
Tim Webster, Nova Scotia Community College (Applied Geomatics Research Group)
“Advanced Coastal Mapping to Support Hydrodynamic Modeling”

This webinar will present an innovative application of LIDAR mapping and ocean modeling technologies.

Nova Scotia’s Atlantic coast exhibits a variety of shorelines that may be vulnerable to contamination in the event of an offshore oil spill.  In turn, variable currents, changing water levels, shoals, and exposed seaside conditions make effective spill response difficult for tidal inlets.  These conditions also present risks to the health and safety of first responders with respect to secure access and safe navigation.

Join Dr. Tim Webster to learn how high-resolution imagery, topo-bathymetric LIDAR, and hydrodynamic modelling can be used to improve oil spill response planning and reaction in near coastal environments.
