I recently wrote a column about researchers using drones to study archaeology in NH, but that’s far from the only way scientists are using drones. They are cropping up in lots of research, from agricultural studies to creating three-dimensional models to surveying wildlife.
Rachael Glazner, a PSU graduate who is getting her Ph.D. in Texas and has earned her FAA drone certification, will give a free talk on the subject, titled “The Emergence of Drones as a Novel Tool for Scientific Research,” at St. Paul’s School in Concord on Friday, Nov. 17.
Her research focuses on the effects of plant structure on predation success, and is is particularly interested in how the expansion of mangroves along the Texas coast will impact ecological communities. She is now also teaching ecology labs at the college level.
The talk starts at 7 p.m. on Friday at the Lindsay Center for Mathematics and Science, Room 131, 325 Pleasant Street, Concord
