The results of a four-year study into coastal erosion, by Kerstin Traut, on a Northumberland Coastline has been published in the Northumberland Gazette.
The study has become part of a shoreline management plan for the county to help the county manage risks in a sustainable way.
QuestUAV’s owner and CEO, Nigel King, says drones have a valuable role in recording and assessing change in many areas, and coastal erosion is just one.
The study, using high accuracy global positioning (GPS) of hundreds of scientific images, has not only highlighted the degradation on parts of the coastline but actually managed to quantify the loss in volumetric tonnes using advanced aerial techniques.
Kerstin Traut is an international Drone Operator for QuestUAV and has commanded commercial drone missions across the globe. Her work as a QuestUAV DroneGirl has reached audiences the world over. Kerstin has a degree in Remote Sensing from East Germany’s Jena University and has worked with QuestUAV for three years.
