The Calm After the Storm…Water Quality
Students will use data collected from Duke University’s Unmanned Facilities Systems (i.e., Drones) to observe the impacts of storm water runoff to water quality before and after storm events. Students will explore drone and other unmanned autonomous systems to develop an understanding of the various applications these technologies provide to study changes in the environment. Students will analyze various data sets and incorporate mapping skills with their knowledge of water quality variables to identify environmental influences to the local estuarine water system.
