UAV Imaging Services in upstate New York with a modified Sky Hero Spyder 850 holds a Kipp and Zonen pyranometer to pick up shortwave radiation reflected by the vegetation below and record it for an ongoing research project at Cornell University. Data will help scientists interpret how forests can help to control climate change. Charlotte Levy, a second-year Cornell PhD student, is organizing the research. Using a telescoping pole with (one of two) pyranometers receives data on solar radiation from overhead.
