Two Duke University graduate students are developing an innovative new technology to measure forest carbon.

Aaron Berdanier and Ramsey Meigs believe that by equipping small unmanned aerial drones with GPS-guided light detection and ranging (LIDAR) sensors, they can accurately measure forest carbon on more than 1,000 acres of forestland a day.
