Cassandra Champagne, Graduate Student Research Assistant in Civil and Environmental Engineering, takes a standard measurement of methane gas emissions inside a landfill in Midland, MI. on October 16, 2018. Using drones, Champagne and her team are implementing techniques for monitoring methane gas emissions in a manner more time efficient, cost efficient, and accurate than current practices.
