Extreme Ice Survey

All this snow and ice (which is finally beginning to melt here in Portland, by the way), reminded me of a link I bookmarked a while back: The Extreme Ice Survey.

This project is the brainchild of nature photojournalist James Balog, who is using a series of 26 time-lapse cameras in places like Greenland and Alaska to document the effects of climate change on some of the worlds largest glaciers. The result is a visually stunning representation of just what is happening to the world's ice fields. While the project continues through next year and will culminate in a documentary film in 2011, you can check out a couple of remarkable video clips that have been released on the site. Just click on "Evidence" along the top menu bar, then "Videos".
