Researchers are using drones and photogrammetry to highlight climate change.

A new 3D process that involves old aerial photos and modern-day drone photography has shed light on accelerated ice-loss from some of Iceland’s largest glaciers.

Dr. Kieran Baxter from the University of Dundee has created composite images that compare views from 1980s aerial surveys to modern-day photos captured with the help of state-of-the-art drone technology and photogrammetry software.
