Presenting at The UK National Earth Observation Conference 2018

After leaving myself two hours additional time to get to Birmingham, to account for Birmingham rush hour traffic I found myself abandoning the car in a carpark further away than planned and putting my recent running training to good use, arriving just in time to upload and present my research in the photogrammetry session at the UK National Earth Observation Conference.

I presented the results from the baseline survey I carried out earlier this year. The focus of the talk was on the 3D models and DTMs produced for sites in Iceland, and how they were constrained and process to maximise resolution so that cut and fill models may be created using future repeat surveys. There was interesting to see similar processing methods being used for monitoring blanket bogs, using lidar generated point clouds.

I also learned more about remote sensing and what data is available, unfortunately, the resolution of the satellite data is not sufficient for my buried Ice project, I will be keeping an eye on the data for large-scale changes in surface topography over my PhD using Sentinel data.

If you saw the presentation I welcome any feedback or questions, also if you were not present or wanted to review the presentation at your own pace, the slides are available in the download section of this website.

 

NSGG Postgraduate Research Symposium 2018 & Coptrz meeting.

Busy day today in Leeds. I presented the results from my baseline survey in Iceland to the NSGG Postgraduate Research Symposium and was featured in a poster about geophysical survey with a mausoleum.

I was pleased with how my presentation went and if I didn’t pronounce Skeiðarárjökull right it was very close and sounded vaguely Icelandic. I received lots of good feedback and the other presentations stimulated some interesting discussion about a range of topics.

Unfortunately I missed a few of the presentations after lunch, but I did manage to squeeze in a quick meeting with George from Coptrz to discuss latest drone technologies (particularly thermal imaging and multi spectral cameras) and how they could be incorporated into my dead ice project, taking into account the need to transport the equipment by plane (LiPo batteries and planes don’t mix well).

I look forward to seeing how the other participants project a progress in the future, and would like to thank all involved for organising the event.
