Cycle II, Irving Shipbuilding Inc. Projects
The heart of the project is the application of a LiDAR sensor aboard a fixed-wing small unmanned aerial vehicle to capture imagery: this will in turn be used to develop a tool that visualizes sea level rise, coastal erosion and storm surges for the vulnerable First Nations community on Lennox Island, Prince Edward Island. The Lennox Island approach to climate visualization has been shared with the United States Geological Survey (USGS) which has asked for future discussions on collaborating on methodology development.
