LiDAR Data for Characterizing Linear and Planar Geomorphic Markers in Tectonic Geomorphology

Description: This paper provides a brief review of airborne light detection and ranging (LiDAR) data for characterizing linear and planar geomorphic markers in tectonic geomorphology, including traces of active faults and surface deformation caused by earthquakes. Challenges and opportunities of LiDAR for the study of tectonic geomorphology and coseismic deformation are also discussed.

Sustainable Science? Reducing the Carbon Impact of Scientific Mega-Meetings

Description: This article uses 9 years of annual meeting attendance data from the Ecological Society of American and the Association of American Geographers to assess the efficacy of two additional solutions: 1) alternate large national meetings that require significant air travel with smaller regional meetings that do not; and 2) incorporate geography into the meeting location selection process.

Ethnobiology 5: Interdisciplinarity in an Era of Rapid Environmental Change

Description: This article argues that ethnobiology is preadapted to be a scholarly umbrella for a number of disciplines that concern human-environment interactions, suggesting that two goals of Ethnobiology 5 are to bridge traditional academic boundaries in order to broaden the community of ethnobiologists, and to capitalize on and communicate the relevance of ethnobiological scholarship for solving problems related to contemporary environmental and cultural crises.
