Low-flying helicopter survey

Detailed Description

The USGS conducts low-level helicopter flights to study the below-surface geology of various locations throughout the nation. These helicopters often tow a large, cylindrical sensor, which remotely captures underground data. Such surveys help scientists and managers better understand natural resources, such as aquifers and available groundwater.
