Karen Joyce Talks Drones and Research with DW #drone #droneday

Great interview with Karen Joyce from DW:

In terms of environmental protection with the Great Barrier Reef, what information are you finding? Is there anything enlightening that you didn’t know before?

One of the projects I’m working on at the moment is to use a special thermal camera that measures temperature. This was one of the first studies to do this using a drone. What I’m interested in with temperature is to understand what’s happening with the water temperature on the reef. By putting up this type of camera on the drone, we can actually take photos of the warm and cool water as it moves around the reef.

Thus we can understand the dynamics of water flow, and how that might affect the corals and other creatures that live on reef as well. This is really interesting for us, as it’s something we have never been able to do before because the technology just wasn’t available.
