UAV Mapping of a Greenland Glacier

Mapping polar regions can be a challenging yet vital mission, helping scientists and researchers to better understand how the planet and its climate are changing. Traditionally, terrestrial and ground-based techniques have limited the scope of activity and the quality of data. In this article, the author discusses how unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV or ‘drone’) solutions have been used in Greenland to successfully monitor the formation of crevasses and the behaviour of ice flow on the Eqip Glacier, providing previously impossible level...
