From sUAS News:
At the Duke Marine Lab in Beaufort, NC, researchers working with the Marine Robotics and Remote Sensing lab were prepared for the event – eyeing it as an opportunity to use their expanding fleet of drones to assess how powerful storms like hurricane Matthew contribute to the erosion of barrier islands along North Carolina’s coast.
“Drones are the perfect tool to take advantage of this tragic natural experiment” said Dr. Dave Johnston, Director of the Marine Robotics and Remote Sensing lab at Duke University. “Having this on-demand remote sensing capability allows us to assess how processes such as storms affect our barrier islands”
Welcome to drone day on the Adafruit blog. Every Monday we deliver the latest news, products and more from the Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV), quadcopter and drone communities. Drones can be used for video & photography (dronies), civil applications, policing, farming, firefighting, military and non-military security work, such as surveillance of pipelines. Previous posts can be found via the #drone tag and our drone / UAV categories.
