Use of RPAS to monitor coastal dune systems and beach erosion in Guardamar del Segura, Spain

The complex dune ecosystem and beaches of Guardamar del Segura has proven to be an excellent test site for monitoring coastal processes using a small, lightweight, easily deployable and affordable commercial RPAS. The possibility of quickly obtaining orthophotos and Digital Surface Models of very high resolution, covering large extensions at a low cost, enables us to model and monitor these rapid-changing environments with regularity and accuracy.
