Summary
Abstract: The Australian Antarctic Division acquired aerial photographs of sea ice from helicopters using a digital Nikon D1X digital camera during the following voyages:
Australian Antarctic Division voyage 1 2003/04 - Antarctic Remote Ice Sensing Experiment (ARISE); Alfred Wegener Institute Ice Station Polarstern (ISPOL) voyage 2004/05; and Australian Antarctic Division voyage 1 2007/08 - Sea Ice Physics and Ecosystems Experiment (SIPEX).

Voyage dates:
ARISE: 10 Sep 2003 to 31 Oct 2003
ISPOL: 6 Nov 2004 to 19 Jan 2005
SIPEX: 29 Aug 2007 to 16 Oct 2007

The Related URLs in this metadata record include the urls of web pages with information about these voyages, urls for requesting for the photographs and urls for downloading information about the photographs.

The ARISE and ISPOL aerial photographs of sea ice are part of the Australian Antarctic Data Centre's collection of aerial photographs which is described by the metadata record 'The collection of aerial photographs held by the Australian Antarctic Data Centre' with Entry ID: aerial_photo_gis.

The collection can be searched in the Australian Antarctic Data Centre's Aerial Photograph Catalogue - see Related URLs.

Select ARISE or ISPOL from the Aerial Photography Series picklist.

Preview images of the photos may be viewed using this search.

Digital flight lines and photo centres representing the runs along which the photographs were taken and the centres of the photographs are the basis of the catalogue.

The flight lines and photo centres for ARISE and ISPOL are available for download as shapefiles - see Related URLs.

Some of the SIPEX aerial photographs were taken at ice stations. Refer to the metadata record 'An integrated study of processes linking sea ice and biological ecosystem elements off East Antarctica during winter', Entry ID: ASAC_2767, for information about the ice stations.

The metadata record 'RAPPLS Surveys (Radar, Aerial Photography, Pyrometer, and Laser Scanning system) made during the SIPEX II voyage of the Aurora Australis, 2012', Entry ID: SIPEX_II_RAPPLS, describes the aerial photography conducted on SIPEX II, 13 Sep 2012 to 15 Nov 2012.

Quality
The locations of the photographs were collected with a Garmin GPS12, sent to the camera using the NMEA protocol, and embedded in image EXIF tags. The image metadata were the only record of photo centres logged at flight time.

Flying heights are above the WGS84 ellipsoid in metres.

See the EXIF header of an image for the aperture and shutter speed details for that image.

Locations for ARISE flight 1 photographs are not available due to a GPS problem.


Access Constraints
The sets of photographs are not available for download due to combined file size but can be requested via Related URLs.
