Field conditions over different land use - sensor comparison and drone flight

In the last days Patrick Hogan (DK WRS), Matthias Oismüller (TU Wien) and Claire Brenner (BOKU Wien) installed soil flux sensors, radiation sensors and an eddy covariance station at the border of two fields with different land use. On one field maize is growing, the other field is currently bare ground (wheat field after harvest).
The goal is to measure the different fluxes over the different land uses.

In addition a drone with thermal cameras was operated, to catch thermal images and videos over the different land uses.
