Some more great news, my submission (see above) to the BGA photograph competition won second prize, first prize went to an amazing photograph taken offshore retrieving equipment from between icebergs as if it were a giant hook a duck (really impressive, both the activity and the photo). The photographs were judged by the BGA committee at the Postgraduate Research in Progress Meeting in the University of Cardiff. The prize money will be put towards the next field season which will hopefully yield more photographs of geophysical surveys being carried out among the beautiful scenery of Iceland.
Thanks again to the British Geophysical Association
Following a successful funding application, the Near Surface Geophysics Group (NSGG) are funding part of my next field season in Iceland. The Field season is planned for Easter 2019. I plan to carry out repeat flights over my current sites to identify any subtle changes in topography, take resistivity readings to identify cover and ice thickness and collect thermal imaging at dawn and dusk to help identify any potential ground ice.
This is great news and I’m looking forward to the planning and execution of the fieldwork early next year.
A big thankyou to all concerned at the NSGG.
My the literature review component has been submitted today, just in time for Christmas. I’ve learnt a lot but still have a lot more to learn and I’m looking forward to getting back into processing more of my data from the previous field season and preparing for the next (Easter 2019) where I plan to carry out resistivity surveys and collect some repeat UAV surveys in SE Iceland. Thanks to my supervisor Dr Richard Waller for the support and encouragement while writing the literature review and to Dr Sam Davenward and Gethin Evans for proof reading for me.
