Further planning for our UpRISER stage 2 project has progressed well. The previous UpRISER stage 1 project established the viability of using an Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) to capture a series of images and field data in Moorooduc and Scoresby in the summer of 2014-15. The collaboration between CFA and RISER for the second-stage UpRISER will collect a second series of images and field data, this time in the Mallee region of Victoria (below).
This next phase will give a more detailed insight into the curing processes at work, building on knowledge gained in stage 1. The work potentially will provide a mechanism for greater accuracy of curing monitoring as CFA expands the geographic coverage of curing estimates interstate.
