A unique collaborative research effort between local and international researchers in the Kruger National Park (KNP), utilising the integration of two relatively novel remote sensing approaches, has been set in motion by the CSIR for the purpose of land degradation assessment. The Carnegie Airborne Observatory (CAO), a state-of-the-art integrated airborne spectrometer-lidar (light detection and ranging) platform operated by the Carnegie Institute at Stanford University, has been used for the first time outside the United States for 80 hours of flight to collect remote sensing data as part of an April-May 2008 pilot study.
