Using Drone Aircrafts and Aquatic Robots To Gather Under Water Data

Jon Strelecki

One of the great challenges for researchers studying the health of freshwater lakes and rivers is seeing under the waves and around the mud and sand that are part of the environment. It takes a lot of hard work, ingenuity and special tools to get the job done.

On this edition of UWM Today, learn about the role that drone aircraft and aquatic robots play in gathering data under water.

Tom Luljak talks with Tom Consi, assistant professor with a joint appointment in UWM's College of Engineering and Applied Science and the university's School of Freshwater Sciences.

Tom Luljak hosted UWM Today on WUWM for more than two decades and is the inaugural host of Curious Campus.
