Drones: inspecting the UK’s changing coastline

DATE: 22 February, 2022

LOCATION: Online webinar

START TIME: 10:00 am END TIME: 11:00 am

In partnership with SurveyAR and the Environment Agency’s Anglian Coastal Monitoring Programme

Drones can be highly effective tools for environmental applications such as monitoring the UK’s coastlines. One stark finding of our recent coastal surveying, as part of the DfT-funded Drone Pathfinder Catalyst programme, was the scale of the impact caused by Storm Arwen in November 2021. This highlighted how drones can assist in measuring and evaluating changes in the coastal profile over single storm events, and the beach behaviour over longer periods.

This webinar will discuss the work carried out within this particular application, utilising drones for detailed monitoring, with our partners SurveyAR and the Environment Agency’s Anglian Coastal Monitoring Programme.
