The next meeting of the Los Alamos Geological Society will begin at 7:30 p.m. today at the Christian Church, 92 East Road.
The featured speaker will be Greg Conklin, MS Optira Inc. His talk is titled, “LIDAR (Light Ranging and Detection) Techniques and Use.”
LIDAR is a commercial technique that utilizes phase based lasers to collect measurements of points on the surface of a physical object.
These points can be projected into 3D space and used to make 3D meshes and solids. Conklin received his master’s degree in chemistry from New Mexico Tech and has vast experience in managing large LIDAR projects.
The September field trip will be to Shark’s tooth ridge some miles off of N.M. 550 on a dirt road located between San Ysidro and Cuba.
For this trip, they will meet at 7:30 a.m. Saturday at Sullivan Field. Fossil shark’s teeth and septarian nodules may be found with the potential for visiting an ammonite locality as well.
Plan on bringing collecting gear, plastic baggies, a camera, sunscreen, a hat, water, lunch and snacks.
