As part of the School of Science and Technology's Joint Seminar Programme for the Engineering and Materials and Computing Informatics Research Centres, Gareth Dorrian NTU presents: Stratospheric Photography with Sounding Balloons

Abstract

The use of sounding balloons to acquire images of the Earth from the Stratosphere has become something of a specialist hobby in recent years. Here I discuss the considerations in undertaking such an exercise on a very modest budget, and show some of the remarkable imagery that can be acquired.

This seminar is hosted by Dr Christopher Castleton

All welcome.

For any queries please contact Dr Christopher Castleton.
