FIU Geodesy Lab

The Geodesy Lab is part of the Department of Earth and Enironment at the Florida International University. The Geodesy Lab state-of-the-art research techniques include: Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR), Interferometric Synthetic Aperture Radar (InSAR), Global Positioning System (GPS), Ground-based Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR). These techniques are applied to quantify and evaluate changes in the Earth's land and water surfaces.
