Flight Ops 1

Drones are an up-and-coming data acquisition system, and the MISO-BOB expedition is an exciting opportunity to test the limits of what our existing platforms can achieve. We are using an infra-red camera to detect patterns of temperature in the sea surface, investigating the effects of flight altitude and sunlight reflections on these images. The goal is to make drones a valuable tool for physical oceanography, giving us novel insights into the workings of 7/10ths of our planet’s surface.

Stay tuned for some images from above!
