B41D:
New Paradigms in Terrestrial Sensing Using Small Unmanned Aerial Systems Posters


Session ID#: 8450

Session Description:
A new and important paradigm is emerging in our ability to quantify terrestrial ecosystems through the use of small unmanned aerial systems (UASs) equipped with active and passive sensor technologies. These systems allow for collection of data over a wide range of spatial and temporal scales not currently possible with other platforms. Measurements from these systems can be used to investigate surface topography and hydrology, to examine vegetation properties and their interactions with soil processes, to parameterize soil-vegetation-atmosphere models, to detect ecological or biogeochemical hotspots, or to improve upscaling from ground-based survey to larger scales. We encourage contributions that present advances in remotely sensing the terrestrial ecosystems using various sensors (incl. visible, hyperspectral, thermal, LiDAR and gas sensors) mounted on an UASs (e.g., unmanned aircraft vehicle, balloon, kite, cart, pole), as well as novel approaches to calibrate, process and/or integrate such data with ground-based biogeochemical, hydrological, geophysical or ecological measurements.
