Hamshaw quoted on using drones to monitor stream bank erosion
Scott Hamshaw is a UVM grad student who monitors and models stream bank erosion using ground-based lasers. If he and his colleagues can use a drone instead, they'll cover a wider area with fewer people. "We've seen some really good results, particularly in areas where we don't have heavy vegetative cover," Hamshaw said.
Researchers hope their work will improve the public image of drones by capturing images that could make a difference.
