Abstract

New technologies are emerging that enable researchers to measure physical environments and habitats at increasingly fine scales and over wide extents. Measurement of physical conditions at fine scales contributes to the understanding of how organisms use their environment. Most importantly, measurement can now take place at the scale individual organisms actually utilize their habitat allowing for the understanding of subtle differences in mechanistic habitat use. The technologies of ground-based LiDAR (AKA terrestrial laser scanning – TLS), Total Station (TS), and rtkGPS have been used to measure the in-stream and riparian environments of Spawn Creek and Right Hand Fork in the Logan River watershed in north eastern Utah.
