CRREL, EPA, U.S. Coast Guard Test New Ways to Measure Smoke Density

 

The Engineer Research and Development Center's Cold Regions Research and Engineer Laboratory partner with the Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Coast Guard to test an aerial drone to determine how effective the device is for measuring air quality and environmental impact of burning oil on water.

The aerial drone is a new means of capturing these measurements, and CRREL is one of the few federal agencies with the knowledge, permissions, licenses, and facilities to accommodate an in situ burn.
