Imaggeo On Monday: Onsala Twin Telescopes

Imaggeo On Monday: Onsala Twin Telescopes

“The Onsala Twin Telescopes are part of the global geodetic Very Long Baseline Interferometry (VLBI) network. Radio telescopes all around the globe are observing extra-galactic radio sources simultaneously to determine Earth orientation parameters, source positions and station coordinates, as well as velocities. Geodetic Very Long Baseline Interferometry is used to maintain the International ...[Read More]

Get the picture? How choosing the right photograph can add value to your science communication

If you are a scientist you probably know the value of a good, well designed image. The right graph or diagram can help the reader to really grasp the meaning of a complicated theory or process, help to illuminate a critical piece of data, or highlight a key finding. But whilst much advice exists about how to create effective, accessible images, what about photographs?   In our early training, ...[Read More]

Imaggeo On Monday: Elephant Foot Glacier in Greenland from a Twin Otter perspective

“I was told that there will be a piedmont glacier on the way from Station Nord, a Danish military base in northeast Greenland, to our destination in no-man’s-land next to the 79°N Glacier. On half the way, we passed the beautiful Elephant Foot Glacier, named after its symmetric shape originating from the viscous flow of the ice. The glacier is located on a peninsula and connected to a small ...[Read More]

Imaggeo On Monday: Geodesy on Zugspitze

The Zugspitze Geodynamic Observatory Germany (ZUGOG) has been setup on the summit of mountain Zugspitze at an altitude of almost 3000 m during 2018 with the main scientific objective being a better understanding of seasonal and long-term mass redistributions in the European Alps. This knowledge is very important (e.g. with regard to water storage and its high sensitivity to climate change), but is ...[Read More]
