The research group SIENA (Spatial Informatics for ENvironmental Applications) research group of Carinthia University of Applied Sciences is currently a research partner in 2 exciting national projects dealing with the development of innovative methods for non-contact measurement of snow parameters in high alpine terrain.
The SIENA team has newly developed and extensively tested a special drone as a fixed-wing aircraft in the area of the Kölnbreinsperre in Carinthia as part of the SnowPower project (Lead: Verfahren Umwelt Management GmbH; www.vum.co.at/leistungen/innovationen/snowpower/ ). Another research focus is the design and practical implementation of different sensor test scenarios for a novel radar measurement system to measure specific snow properties in the FFG project KlimZug, which is coordinated by UBIMET GmbH (KlimZug - "Climate Change Adaptation in Train Traffic by Forecasting Extreme Weather & Climate Change-induced Changes in Energy Supply"; https://projekte.ffg.at/projekt/4091435).
