Inter-tidal and underwater survey methods – a busy week

It has been a busy week in the centr,e with numerous talks by visiting speakers and more practical instruction on the MA/MSc programme.  This has seen discussion of advances in AUV technology for extensive and intensive surveys, photogrammetric techniques (onland and underwater) and RTI applications.  This year’s students should now be putting some of these techniques (along with more traiditonal RTK GPS, total station and basic tape measured survey) as part of their ARCH6012 assessments.  When the weather warms up a little we’ll move onto practising techniques underwater.
