Jim Aanstoos, Associate Research Professor in the Geosystems Research Institute, recently attended the American Geophysical Union (AGU) Conference in San Francisco. The December meeting drew 15,000 geophysicists from around the world and provided an opportunity for researchers, teachers, students, and consultants to present and review the latest issues affecting the earth, the planets, and their environments in space. The meeting covered topics in all areas of Earth and space sciences.

Dr. Aanstoos presented his poster entitled, “Screening of Earthen Levees Using Synthetic Aperture Radar” which described his research using airborne multi-polarized synthetic aperture radar for assessing the condition of levees. This research will result in better allocation of resources to inspect, test, and repair levees most in need. Co-authors on the poster were: Chuck O'Hara, Saurabh Prasad, Lalitha Dabbiru, Rodrigo Nobrega, and Matthew Lee. The American Geophysical Union was established in 1919 by the National Research Council. For more information: AGU Website.
