Drones help solve the forest carbon capture riddle in Thailand

The drone images knitted into a 3D model reveal the woodland’s health and help estimate how much carbon it can absorb.On a hillside overlooking cabbage fields outside the northern Thai city of Chiang Mai, a drone’s rotors begin to whir, lifting it over a patch of forest. It moves back and forth atop the rich canopy, transmitting photos to be knitted into a 3D model that reveals the woodland’s health and helps estimate how much carbon it can absorb.https://www.aljazeera.com/gallery/2023/12/20/drones-help-solve-the-forest-carbon-capture-riddle-in-thailand

                  The use of drones to assess forest health and estimate carbon absorption in Thailand represents an innovative and technology-driven approach in the fight against climate change. By capturing images and creating a 3D model, these drones provide valuable insights into the condition of the woodland. This information is crucial for understanding the forest's role in carbon capture, contributing to efforts to quantify and monitor the impact of natural ecosystems on climate change. The application of such advanced technology not only enhances our environmental monitoring capabilities but also highlights the intersection of science and innovation in addressing global environmental challenges.
