Thursday the 16th of June was the first data acquisition day of PLP2022. Sentinel-2 satellite data, along with very-high-resolution multi-spectral, RGB and thermal data using drone-borne imagers on board a UCD Mera quadcopter UAS. The targets were visually inspected for signs of damage and to assure the tethering to the anchoring buoys is up to specifications. Ancillary data measurements were taken, including wind speed and direction, incident light intensity, sea surface temperature. Water samples were also taken to assess chlorophyll concentrations for the Aquasafe project. Conditions were windy, with wind gusts up to 11 m/sec and clear skies.
