Using a fleet of research aircraft, our Operation IceBridge images Earth's polar ice to better understand connections between polar regions and the global climate system. IceBridge studies annual changes in thickness of sea ice, glaciers and ice sheets. IceBridge bridges the gap between the IceSat missions.

Seen here is a time-lapse view of a glacier-run from the cockpit of our P-3 Orion aircraft taken during a May 8, 2017 flight over Greenland's Southeast glaciers.

Some amazing photos captured in Norway. It was just an amazing country full of cool local bars, beautiful waterfalls, and huge glaciers. #norway #fjords #glaciers #waterfalls #bergen #alasund #oslo #belowdeck #archimedes #archie

18 MAY: Nasa uses a fleet of research aircraft to take images of Earth's polar ice. This is a time-lapse video of Greenland's Southeast glaciers taken from the cockpit of a P-3 Orion aircraft. It is part of a project called Operation IceBridge which is trying to get a better understanding of connections between polar regions and the global climate system.

Today is #BiodiversityDay!
Mount Kenya, the second-highest mountain in Africa, is pictured in this image from Japan’s ALOS satellite from 25 February 2011.
Standing just above 5000 m, this stratovolcano is one of many volcanoes in the East African Rift, an area where two tectonic plates are moving apart.
The mountain has 11 small glaciers but, like all glaciers on the high mountains of tropical Africa, they are rapidly retreating. Less snow accumulates during the winter than melts in the summer, and there is little to no formation of new ice. According to some predictions, there will no longer be any ice on the mountain in the next three decades.
The area around Mount Kenya is a national park protecting the biodiversity and forming an attractive destination for tourists, making it a key economic resource for the region. The area is home to monkeys, antelopes, elephants and leopards.
The Mount Kenya National Park and its natural forest has been an UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1997.
North of the mountain peak we can see a brown patchwork of fields, and a distinct line where the protected area ends and agriculture begins. In fact, a small portion of the park’s borders have fences and other barriers to keep animals within the reserve and off of the farmland. 
In the upper right, there are large patches of light green, which are probably areas of failed agricultural development that now belong to the protected area.
Past threats from commercial tree plantations and other habitat destruction have been alleviated through long-term efforts, including the government’s policy of not converting any more natural forest for plantation development. But some areas that had been cleared but never planted are now colonised by grasses, and are being maintained as open grazing lands, rather than being allowed to revert to natural forest.

SVALBARD...Llegar cerca del Polo Norte. / Been close to the north pole 🌍

Ayer salió mi tercera columna, esta vez sobre los poblados más al norte del mundo. Navegar el ártico, caminar sus tierras y visitar pueblos fantasmas es una aventura que no olvidaré y ojalá repita. No duden en visitar estas tierras!
Gracias a la secretaria de turismo de Longyearbyen, a Arctic explorer, a la universidad de Longyearbyen y a Trine por su ayuda para esta nota.

Yesterday my column about the northest place on earth was published. Visiting those ghost towns, waking it's land and sailing the Arctic was a unique experience. I know I will come back. I hope you can visit it too.
Thanks to the tourism buro of Longyearbyen, to Arctic explorer, to the Longyearbyen university and to Trine to make this possible!

I was in a crevasse. In a white out. And then ski descended, in a white out. Things that I hope never happen accidentally. But as part of a training: incredible!! #glaciers #mountaineering #backcountryskiing #alpinetouring

Mt Rainier is an ice queen too. ❄️

@jensennagle released this new image at @photolondonfair. "I wanted to try and start a dialogue, the relationship between the glacier and the beach. From an environmental standpoint, with the rapid decrease in glaciers and tidal waters rising your going to see a decrease in our beaches as well!" See link in bio. .
