#MalaspinaGlacier

MOST RECENT

Matrimonio negli anni '20: una faccenda davvero seria! C'è qualcosa di epico e allo stesso tempo paradossale in queste espressioni serissime. Come nel caso del ghiacciaio Malaspina, in Alaska, che, pur essendo il più grande ghiacciaio pedemontano al mondo, non è difficile immaginare come un gigantesco slittino in caduta libera. #phest18 #wewereinpuglia #sustainabletextiles #whomademyclothes #satellite #alaska #malaspinaglacier #foulard #fashion #nature

Ледник Маласпина, расположенный на юго-востоке Аляски, - самый крупный предгорный ледник в мире. Предгорными называют ледники, образованные слиянием сразу нескольких малых ледников при их выходе к подножию горы. Площадь ледника - 3,900 км2, что превышает размер штата Род-Айленд и целого ряда государств (фото: @nasa)

A beautiful false-colour satellite capture of the Malaspina glacier in Alaska!
It a piedmont glacier – meaning that ice flows down a steep valley and spills out onto a relatively flat plain - and the largest of its kind, with an area of about 3900 sq km!
Satellite data show that the elevation of Malaspina has dropped over the past decades, and this ice loss has made a significant contribution to sea-level rise.

This flight plan is always memorizing. #malaspinaglacier #mountfairweather #flightnurseperks

The largest National Park in the #NPS, @wrangellstenps, is also home to some of the largest glaciers in North America. The Malaspina #Glacier in the largest piedmont glacier in North America, seemingly spilling out of the St. Elias Mountains. This large body of ice comes in at over 1 million acres, larger than the state of Rhode Island. Named after an Italian navigator for the Spanish Navy in the 1700s, it was mistaken for a plateau. It was not until the late 1800s that explorers realized it was actually a glacier!

Since the Oscars are close...we thought we make our own category: "best false-colour glacier"! Runner up are: Petermann Glacier (first pic), Nordenskiold Glacier (second pic) and Malaspina Glacier (third pic)... comment with your vote! (slide show)

Not done with my #Alaska #Vintage #Travelmap #Button Sets on my #etsy shop yet! The #MalaspinaGlacier in southeastern Alaska is the largest #piedmont #glacier in the world. Situated at the head of the Alaska #Panhandle, it is about 65 km wide and 45 km long, with an area of some 3,900 km². A piedmont glacier is created when a glacier spills over a steep valley and stretches out onto the flat valley below. #themoreyouknow #Cohoe #Kasilot #Kijik #Kenai #Soldotna #Alsworth #Ikpek #Wales #YunaskaIsland #Ninilchik #ClamGulch #accessories #pin http://etsy.me/2n4qaTJ

Malaspina glacier (Alaska) from above - yes, these are natural colours & shapes. Nature is the biggest artist.

The Sentinel-2A satellite takes us over southeastern Alaska to the Malaspina Glacier.
The climate and topography of this area over the last 12.5 million years have been favourable for glaciers. During the Ice Age, a vast ice sheet covered this spot. When temperatures rose, an interglacial period began.
The coastal mountains and the maritime climate of this area provide the perfect setting for glaciation: some of the world’s longest and most spectacular glaciers are found here.

In this false-colour image, red depicts vegetated areas while purple shows rock. The wavy purple lines around the lower half of the glacier are rock, soil and other debris that have been deposited by the glacier – called moraines.
Satellite data show that the elevation of Malaspina has dropped over the past decades, and this ice loss has made a significant contribution to sea-level rise.
This image, also featured on the Earth from Space video programme, was acquired on 8 March 2016. The low Sun level at Alaska’s high latitudes during this season is evident by the shadows cast north by the Elias Mountains.

Flew the dream route from Anchorage to Haines today and topped it off with a brown bear sighting. #alaska #49thstate #beringglacier #IcyBay #malaspinaglacier #mtfairweather #glacierbay #haines #bears #brownbear Hoping to fly more of #SEalaska for #worldhelicopterdaystory #verticalmag
