Dash 7 aircraft coming in to land at Rothera, one of the remotest runways in the World.
Icebergs trapped in the frozen ocean between Adelaide Island and the main Antarctic Peninsula.
Tools and emergency equipment, ready for a day’s work in Antarctica.
Installing a GPS instrument to measure isostatic rebound near Mount Ivins, in the Antarctic Peninsula.
Tent-bound at a remote site in poor weather - we are surrounded by uncharted mountains, so cannot fly until the visibility improves.
Weather can change quickly in Antarctica, leaving you unexpectedly stranded for several days - the planes carry emergency equipment for just such an occurrence.
Sunset from the British base at Rothera.
Preparing instruments in the warm and dry, prior to installing them in the rather colder, windier conditions of Antarctica.
Flying across the Antarctic Peninsula; although the mountains are plastered in snow and ice, measurements tell us that this region is losing ice at an increasing rate.
Unloading equipment in the northern Antarctic Peninsula; a region where GPS measurements of isostatic rebound have enabled us to quantify the rate of ice loss over the past decade.
Adelie penguins are a common site at the British base of Rothera.
View from Adelaide Island across to the main Antarctic Peninsula; as the ocean and the atmosphere warm, these glaciers are susceptible to change.
Mountains of the Antarctic Peninsula; we carry out a range of measurements to enable us to understand the thickness and age of the ice, as well as how quickly it is melting today.
