Knowledge of underwater morphology, river substrate or distribution of riverine vegetation provides essential input to hydrodynamic model applications, habitat studies or planning of restoration measures in regulated rivers. Traditional manual or vessel-based surveys are time-consuming and sometimes dangerous or impossible to implement in rivers with strong currents. Remote sensing techniques based on low altitude Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) may represent an alternative. This CEDREN seminar presents experiences with this technology and discusses future needs and perspectives.
