Drones help solve forest carbon capture riddle

Chiang Mai (Thailand) (AFP) – In a forest outside the northern Thai city of Chiang Mai, a drone moves back and forth atop the rich canopy, transmitting photos to be knitted into a 3D model of the woodland’s health and an estimate of how much carbon it can absorb. Drones are part of an increasingly sophisticated arsenal used by scientists to understand forests and their role in the battle against climate change.
