Fieldwork in the Arctic

Fieldwork in the Arctic

July 8, 2024

Our UAS team is currently conducting fieldwork in the Arctic and is facing rapidly changing weather conditions. Even though the weather did not work out as planned and only first test flights with our Lidar, multispectral, oblique or thermal sensors were possible the mood was still good because of the amazing landscape unimportant of the weather conditions.

While the two PhD students of the UAS team, Elio Rauth and Antonio Castaneda under supervision from Dr. Mirjana Bevanda and in close cooperation with Prof. Larissa Beumer and Prof. Simone Lang from UNIS, are awaiting better conditions, the missions are refined and the accessibility of the different sites are discussed – while accounting for different means of transport, from car to walking with all the equipment. Many more missions are scheduled for the next weeks and we are very much looking forward to some great multi-sensor analysis and interdisciplinary applications of our UAS earth observation data sets.
