Event description

Description

The Antarctic is a difficult place to do science. Keeping a research ship moving, safe and efficient while executing research projects is tricky in a vast expanse of frozen ocean. From ice charts, to satellite imagery, sea ice forecasts and even surveillance by small drones. Andrew Fleming, British Antarctic Survey, describes how space borne technologies have revolutionised marine operations.
