Airborne survey of debris-covered glaciers in the western Italian Alps
A Leica System 1200 GPS was loaned to provide a base station record in support of two NERC ARSF approved projects (GB07/09 and GB07/10). The base station was occupied using the Leica 1200 on most days between 23 and 30 August 2009 while the ARSF crew were in Italy, but due to a combination of highly changeable weather conditions and technical problems with the airborne survey equipment most sorties had to be abandoned and only partial data have so far been received by the PI. The Leica 1200 worked successfully on all occasions it was deployed, and provided a satisfactory reference datum for the airborne data, but the data themselves are not considered worthy of further analysis or publication.
