Aerial drone video of the Thomas G. Thompson

The drone video is from June when we placed sensors around Okmok Volcano in the Aleutian Islands.   You can see the deck is loaded with the sensors,  which when assembled and dropped to sea floor, measure the magnetic field inside the volcano.  Scientists can tell when and where the hot magma is moving.

The video was shot in the fog, but we were only a couple miles from the island.
