The EGU General Assembly 2018 will be held during April 8-13 in Vienna, Austria.
Please consider submitting an abstract to the following session: Unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) as a new, emerging instrument in Geosciences.
This session is a part of Geosciences Instrumentation and Data Systems program group.
An unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV), commonly known as a drone, is an aircraft without a human pilot aboard. Originating mostly from military applications, their use is rapidly expanding to commercial, recreational, agricultural, and scientific applications. Unlike manned aircraft, UAVs were initially used for missions too "dull, dirty, or dangerous" for humans. Nowadays however, many modern scientific experiments have begun to use UAVs as a tool to collect different types of data. Their flexibility and relatively simple usability now allow scientist to accomplish tasks that previously required expensive equipment like piloted aircrafts, gas, or hot air balloons. Even the industry has begun to adapt and offer extensive options in UAV characteristics and capabilities. At this session, we would like people to share their experience in using UAVs for scientific research. We are interested to hear about specific scientific tasks accomplished or attempted, types of UAVs used, and instruments deployed.
Conveners: Misha Krassovski, Jens Klump, Sebastien Biraud
Please distribute this request to your colleagues as appropriate.
The deadline for abstract submission is January 10, 2018.
