Antarctic photo science archive unlocked

The photo expeditions were run out of Deception Island, a flooded caldera in the peninsula's north

And that is a big challenge when snow and ice obscure ground features that might otherwise act as visual anchors. 

But the researchers from the British Antarctic Survey (BAS), Newcastle University and University of Gloucestershire believe they are cracking the problem. 

"We want to use these pictures to work out volume and mass-balance changes in the glaciers through time," explained Dr Lucy Clarke from the University of Gloucestershire.
