Mapping of South Georgia

Adrian Fox, Head of Mapping at the British Antarctic Survey, will be giving a talk at the Defense Surveyors Association Annual Seminar on the 27th June. The talk will describe the evolution of mapping of South Georgia, from the earliest mapping efforts, through the expeditions of Duncan Carse in the 1950s into the interior of the island, to modern maps at detailed scales produced from satellite imagery to support the recent rat and reindeer eradication projects.

Further details are on the Defense Surveyors Association website.

Shackleton Legacy meeting

The Shackleton Legacy meeting that we recently jointly held with SPRI was well attended and was a great success.

The full programme of talks – on subjects as varied as Shackleton’s leadership skills, sea ice conditions, navigation techniques, and expedition nutrition – remains online on our Shackleton Legacy page, with links to outlines of the speakers talks where they are available.
