An Introduction to Unmanned Aerial Vehicles as a Tool for Erosion and Sediment Control Site Inspections
This webinar will showcase current ongoing research focused on using unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) for conducting site inspections applications. The study, being conducted by Auburn University researchers, focuses on erosion and sediment control applications in construction. Participants will be exposed to UAV technologies to develop: project progression documentation, photogrammetric site visualization, highly detailed digital elevation models, and assessment of vegetation and crop health. Developed inspection methods, case study site assessments, and preliminary research findings and results will be discussed. The webinar will cover topics geared towards conducting inspections for construction, infrastructure, environmental, and agricultural applications. *Space is limited, register early.
Sediment Basin Design: How Five Different Sediment Detention Devices Varied in Efficiencies
This will be a course on sediment basin design and how varying practices lead to significant differences in sediment retention efficiencies. Participants will understand the importance of sediment control for water quality, and the importance of best management practices during construction. Participants will also understand sediment basin design changes and how they affect overall compliance with standard regulations.
Soil Health and Erosion Control
Today, more than ever, we understand the importance of soil health. Soil health is quickly becoming a topic of international concern. Internationally, lack of soil health negatively effects the quality of life in many countries due to reduced food production, decreased water quality, and increased soil erosion issues. The effects of poor soil health can be lessened or eliminated through education, awareness, and ultimately the adoption of Soil Health Best Management Practices (BMP). In this webinar, Rhett K. Kerby, M.S. will offer real world examples of soil health identifiers and discuss how Soil Health BMPs can be implemented to improve soil health and reduce erosion.
