Big Bar Slide - 2020 - Airborne Coastal Observatory Data

The ACO Below is a brief overview of the Airborne Coastal Observatory (ACO) and the type of data collected. For more detailed information about data processing, data quality assurance, software used please contact data@hakai.org The Airborne Coastal Observatory (ACO) is a collaborative program led by the Hakai Institute with partners the University of Northern British Columbia and Kisik Aerial Surveying. The program offers rapid and accurate aerial observations of coastal ecosystems, from Icefields to Oceans. a A Kisik Aerial Piper Navajo aircraft is packed with an array of integrated Earth imaging sensors and technology to provide highly visual and highly accurate data

Big Bar Slide The survey is located at the Big Bar slide area along the Fraser River in British Columbia, Canada. Coverage includes French Bar Canyon, Chisholm Canyon, and Grinder Canyon. The purpose of the survey is to capture high spatial resolution data detailing the landscape along the Fraser River in relation to active salmon research in the area. Primary end-user contact is Jeremy Venditti. Data collection date: April 16th, 2020.
