Studying volcanic gas emissions using drones

Bagana volcano seen from the air during UAV gas sensing flight.

Unoccupied aerial vehicles (UAVs), or drones, are transforming our ability to study volcanic emissions, allowing unique access to gas plumes that are otherwise too hazardous or challenging to reach. Beyond visual line of sight flights are particularly exciting, allowing us to launch sensors into gas plumes from several kilometres away.
