Image Competition


The winners of the 2018 BGA image competition are:

1st: Rich Jones (Durham University): “Retrieving science toys amongst the sea ice. Ocean monitoring equipment can be left for weeks to years, but at some point need to be retrieved. This time the ship had to calve up the sea ice in order to access the prize, which then just needed to be cautiously hooked from the side of the ship.”


2nd: Ben Davenward (Keele): “From my recent fieldwork and subsequent processing in Skaftafell National Park, where I carried out UAV and EM-31 surveys over dead ice topography in order to identify the horizontal extent of buried ice. I will be returning to carry out repeat UAV surveys and resistivity surveys to identify vertical extents in March 2019.”
