Detailed Description

This video describes USGS use of Unoccupied Aircraft Systems (UAS) or "drones" for use in 2018 at Kilauea Volcano in Hawaii. The speaker, Angie Diefenbach, is a leading expert in use of UAS for volcano surveillance and research. The presentation was given in June 2020 to colleagues in Ecuador who are interested in applications of UAS at their volcanoes. Angie is a member of the USGS/USAID Volcano Disaster Assistance Program, and many of the developments for use of UAS have come through our international work funded by USAID.
