UAV4SEA: TECHNOLOGY DEVELOPMENT FOR DRONE-BASED COASTAL OBSERVATIONS

UAV4SEA is a bilateral initiative between CIIMAR and NIVA funded by EEA Grants that aims to strengthen bilateral relations between Portuguese and Norwegian scientists through exchange of experience and knowledge in UAV remote sensing techniques applied to the mapping of coastal biological communities. This talk will present the scope of this initiative namely the partnership with another CIIMAR project, the SWUAV and the research developed within its framework.
