Decades of satellite images of earth’s glaciers & ice sheets have been compiled by NASA into a time lapse video showing how our planet’s frozen regions are changing. Time lapse videos of glaciers & ice sheets as seen from space, spanning 50 years. Offers deep insights into how our planet’s frozen spaces have drastically changed.
Video is compiled by glaciologist Mark Fahnestock of University of Alaska Fairbanks, using images from NASA-USGS Landsat program dating back to 1972. Stitched 6 second time lapses of each glacier in Alaska, Yukon. Reveals what’s happening to Alaska glaciers in a warming climate.
Some glaciers show lakes forming where ice used to be & debris from landslides making their way to seas. Inspires sensitivity & sensibility towards our planet.
