2013 Time lapse photography of Helheim glacier (NERC grant NE/I007148/1)
These high resolution high-oblique time-lapse images were collected in hourly intervals from 5 locations around Helheim glacier in SE Greenland in the summer of 2013. Three cameras (Cameras 1, 2 and 3) were aimed at the calving front ~3.5 km down glacier from the calving front and two cameras (Cameras 4 and 5) were aimed cross-glacier ~3 km up glacier from the calving front. The images are in two stereo groups allowing the extraction of 3D data with significant processing though there are some optical issues that will degrade quality.

Cameras 1-3 were Canon EOS 50Ds and generated images of dimensions 4752 x 3168 at 4.6 um sensor resolution. Cameras 4-5 are Canon EOS 7Ds and generated images of dimensions 5184 x 3456 and 4.2 um sensor resolution. The imagery is in Canon .CR2 RAW format and have not undergone any processing.
