Our field season has started!
While spring just set in, we couldn’t wait to explore the suitability of yet another exciting field site. The Bay of Lübeck was our destination in the first half of March in order to identify feasible patchy eelgrass meadows with high exposure to waves. Testing various measuring instruments and sampling methods, we deployed a quadcopter of the Ludwig-Franzius-Institut operated by Raúl Villanueva (see picture). During the summer months we are going to conduct a mapping campaign with an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) in order to record the eelgrass cover and its structure under water through parts of the bay.
