Antarctic Survey

Airborne Gravity Survey with Columbia University's Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory (LDEO) 2017-08-12 17:00

See our airborne gravity meter AT1A-5 as it flies above the Antarctic Ross Ice Shelf aboard one of the New York Air National Guard's LC-130 aircraft.

AT1A-5 was manufactured for Columbia University's Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory (LDEO) Polar Geophysics group, where they have used the sensor to perform aerial gravity surveying of the Ross Ice Shelf as part of the Rosetta project.
