Sea Ice Research Projects

Sea ice is a critically important feature of the polar regions and its presence influences the climate, marine ecology and human activity.  Our work is focused primarily on coastal sea ice, in particular multiyear landfast sea ice, shore and flaw leads and ice ridges.


We are using uninhabited aerial vehicles (UAVs) to survey sea ice topography, like ridges sails, in order to map them using structure from motion photogrammetry.
