All we wanted for Christmas...was some good looking cores from the NC coast.
Our team enjoyed working with our SC, GA and BOEM colleagues.
Drones, a.k.a. Unmanned Aerial Systems (UASs, using FAA speak) are a relatively new tool for many applications, including environmental mapping and change analysis. Scientists at UNC CSI and ECU will be using them into the future for research and education.
Today, we learned federal and state regulations and demonstrated our aircraft capability.
