Blue Whale Photogrammetric Measurements

MaRRS Lab lead engineer Julian Dale, PhD student KC Bierlich, and Dr. Dave Johnston travelled to Santa Barbara and Monterey, California in August to work with researchers from Stanford University, West Chester University, and Saint Louis University. Together, they tagged and collected drone based aerial imagery of blue and humpback whales off the coast off of California. By comparing the photogrammetric data to the tag data, the researchers are investigating new ways to study the locomotor performance and maneuverability of marine mammals.
