PhD Student at N.C. State University Makes Customized Drone to Collect Water Samples

Recommended Posts

As a doctoral student at North Carolina State University, Will Reckling has been using drones to study potentially harmful algal blooms.

Right now, drones are helping Reckling in his algal research by:

  • Mapping waterways so he can find algal blooms
  • Collecting water samples that contain algal blooms

The second application—using a drone to collect algal blooms—has been made possible by a unique water collection device Reckling created just for his research.


Read today's article to learn more about how Reckling uses drones in his research, or comment below with other ways you've heard of people using drones in their own research.
