The UAS team already started their field data season a few weeks ago but finally they had splendid weather for UAS flight campaigns. They have a tough year ahead with a very challenging schedule – flying various sites, from forest to agriculture, from cold to tropic regions and some of them in very high temporal resolution. Various multispectral, thermal and Lidar sensors are used to cover the diversity of landscape attributes in the different study sites.
This challenging task is just possible with a strong team of highly dedicated PhD and student assistants. Antonio Castaneda is conducting his PhD with different UAS data sets and various young EAGLE students are assisting him and Dr. Mirjana Bevanda in acquiring and processing the huge amount of data.
