Default Kiters helping with the Gulf oil spill

With the Gulf Coast threatened by the BP oil spill environmental disaster, there have been non-profits as well as concerned citizens who are applying their expertise in monitoring and mitigating this catastrophe.

We found a very cool site where the students launch high-altitude balloons as well as towed kites outfitted with cameras to get aerial imagery of the shifting slick in the Gulf, helping to monitor its position.

This is a great example of how kiting technologies can be utilized for research, education, and environmental applications.
