One of our coastal erosion research projects, carried out in collaboration with Professor André Robichaud of the Université de Moncton and the New Brunswick Department of Natural Resources and Energy Development, was the subject of an article from Radio Canada.
This project aims to establish an efficient, reproducible and inexpensive method of using the drone to make an annual follow-up of the change in the position of the coastline.
In a context of rapid evolution of the Acadian littoral, this method could fill the gaps in the scientific data to better prepare adaptation to the consequences of climate change in the Acadian coastal communities.
The star of the article is a Groupe Régenord airborne vehicle operated by our experienced and certified personnel for the operations of drone flights. In addition to its use for monitoring the evolution of the coastline, Groupe Régenord's drone was used to study the effects of fertilization on blueberry fields, aerial imagery and the study of the installation of new infrastructures.
