DJI Drones Make Breakthrough in Volcano Research

DJI and the University of Mainz, Germany, have completed a ground-breaking mission for volcano research by collecting gas directly from the crater of Italy’s Mount Etna.

The scientists, led by volcanologist Prof. Jonathan Castro, took innovation in their field to an unprecedented level by using a DJI Inspire 1 with Zenmuse XT thermal camera to detect the crater’s temperature in combination with the DJI Matrice 600 Pro as a frame for a multi-gas measurement box to analyse gas composition and deformation from the air.

The academic world is reacting positively and with more institutions around the world relying on drones in their quest to predict eruptions, we are moving a step closer to potentially saving thousands of lives.Watch the video.
