Drone to scan Amazon forest in Brazil, look for evidence of ancient civilizations
February 14 , 2015
Researchers will take the help of a drone to scan Brazil’s Amazon forest for evidence of ancient civilizations.
The drone will be fitted with a laser instrument in an attempt to find out how large these ancient communities were and the extent to which they changed the landscape.
This international initiative has bagged a $1.9 million grant from the European Research Council.
The team’s key focus would be to gauge the activities and size of the communities that lived in these areas hundreds of years ago.
