Ice Tracker2

Starting July 2022 we are making a more advanced dGPS tracking system as part of our Leverhulme funded project on The role of subglacial soft bed hydrology on glacier response to climate change.

The system will use the Ublox M9 GNSS and some new communications (SWARM) to save energy and costs. We hope to make a version suitable for deployment using a quadcopter – so sensors can be placed far away on fast flowing ice. We will also be using satellite images and UAV imaging flights to build a picture of ice movements.
