Highlights from Antarctica Research

Lab researchers used multirotor aircraft to record the forging behavior of humpback whales and collected still imagery for photogrammetric assessment (measuring through photos) of the whale’s body condition.

The researchers filmed two humpback whales bubble net feeding in the deeper waters of the Bellingshausen Sea.

     

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

By using the senseFly eBee, researchers created a 3D surface model of penguin colonies at Avian Island, Western Antarctic Peninsula. Lab researchers also used the senseFly eBee for thermal melt water mapping off the glacier face.
