Project description

Thermal remote sensing is the most promising technique for assessing the spatial variability of drought stress in grapevine. However, its application is hampered by technical and scientific challenges. In this project, thermal maps are acquired by equipping a helicopter drone is equipped with a thermal camera and a new method for estimating drought stress is developed
