Kite science: assessing water pollution from the sky

Hi all!

We have argued many times that a kite can be a powerful, cheap, simple to operate and very versatile aerial scientific platform.

Turns out that one can assess levels of pollution and even discern different pollutants using a kite with a cheap infrared camera on it.
