• Pilot Project: Using Drones in Svalbard and Death Valley

    264 views 2 months ago
    A partnership between the MIT Libraries and Kristin Bergmann's lab in EAPS (Earth, Atmospheric, and Planetary Sciences) uses drones (or UAVs) to explore ancient sedimentary rocks. Using drones allows students and researchers to collect their own data in landscapes that can be difficult to navigate on foot, including Svalbard, Norway, and California's Death Valley.

    The MIT Libraries are an engine for creating, sharing, and safeguarding knowledge at the Institute and beyond. The Libraries work to improve the world’s collective knowledge by equipping current and future scholars with the best content and the skills to use it, whether examining medieval manuscripts or flying drones to collect data. We make MIT research — from the LIGO detection of gravitational waves to the future of workplace automation — openly accessible to the world. Our new research initiative will tackle the big challenges in information science and scholarly communication, ranging from digital preservation to accessibility and inclusion in library systems.
