Monitoring shifting sands and low-growing vegetation in shallow turbid coastal water with LIDAR (LIght Detection And Ranging) and hyperspectral imagery
Patrick Launeau did his doctoral work in Toulouse (France) on structural image analysis. He then came to the University of Toronto for two years in the early 1990s to work with Sandy Cruden and Pierre Robin, and has co-authored a number of papers with them since. Patrick went on to the Université de Nantes where he still is. His research focuses on petrographic analysis of magmatic flow, and, increasingly, on remote sensing of planetary surfaces using visible and infrared spectral analysis. Patrick Launeau is currently visiting Toronto for a week to work with Optech, the Toronto-based manufacturer of the LIDAR instrument that he and his co-workers use.
