Taking to the skies: the BicWIN 2017 experiment and the "flying wave buoy"

Frustrated by difficulties to reach the ice edge with an ice canoe, LOPS researcher Peter Sutherland is taking to the skies. In addition to provide high resolution sea ice imagery, the LOPS drone is equipped with sensors o measure waves when it lands on the ice. The 2017 experiment in the St Lawrence river led by University of Rimouski colleagues  is underway.
