[[CSDMS meeting abstract presentation::This clinic will introduce participants to GRASS6.4.3 with special focus on terrain modeling, geomorphometry, watershed analysis and modeling of landscape processes such as surface water flow and erosion/deposition. The hands-on section will explore lidar-based terrain models, multiple surface visualization, analysis of coastal lidar time series and visualization of terrain evolution using space-time cube. Overview of new capabilities in the GRASS7 development version will also be provided.

Notice: The participants will be expected to download and install GRASS6.4.3 as well as the practice data sets from the provided web site prior to the clinic. (see below)

Everything used in the clinic will be available through the following web site:
