Extreme Ice Survey - Tonight 3-24-09 - Watch it

Check out the website Extreme Ice Survey and the NOVA tonight. It is guaranteed to be spectacular.

From their web site they say

"The Extreme Ice Survey is the most wide-ranging glacier study ever conducted using ground-based, real-time photography. EIS uses time-lapse photography, conventional photography, and video to document the rapid changes now occuring on the Earth's glacial ice. The EIS team has installed 27 time-lapse cameras at 15 sites in Greenland, Iceland, Alaska, and the Rocky Mountains. EIS supplements this ongoing record with annual repeat photography in Iceland, the Alps, and Bolivia."

  1. I watched the EIS special on NOVA last night because your post intrigued me, and I'm so glad I did. It was fantastic--thanks for recommending. Scariest part was the lakes formed from the melt water draining to the base of the ice sheet, and lubricating it, making it move faster. Scary stuff.
