Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV), commonly known as drones, are increasingly being deployed in the gathering of high-resolution water and environmental data.
Along with the European Space Agency’s new satellite missions, these new data sources are adding to the ways we monitor and manage water and the environment.
New Opportunities in Satellite and Airborne Remote Sensing, Hydrological and Environmental Applications
Brought to you by DHI and DTU Environment, this seminar aims to provide an overview of the latest knowledge concerning remote sensing for monitoring and managing water environments. The programme features two keynote speakers, Radoslaw Guzinski from the Centre for Earth Observation (ESRIN) at the European Space Agency and Patrice Carbonneau from the University of Durham who have conducted successful UAV field campaigns in the UK, the Swiss Alps, the Atacama Desert and Svalbard.
These questions, and more, will be addressed:
- ‘What are the current capabilities and limitations of these new technologies?’
- ‘How can they be used in management and decision-making, as well as monitoring?’
- ‘What opportunities are on the horizon, both commercially and technologically?’
The seminar falls within the framework of DHI’s Research Development & Technology contract (2016-18)
with the Danish Agency for Science and Education.
