Speaker:

Dr Toby Waine, Cranfield University

Abstract:

Dr Waine will explore how science and technology is revolutionising agricultural engineering with a particular focus on remote sensing from space and drones. From measuring illicit opium production in Afghanistan to undertaking national assessments of vegetation in semi-arid climates, innovative use of remote sensing supports operational methods for vegetation monitoring and provides robust, statistically-based area estimates of land cover and net primary production.
