Researchers @NPIglaciology have been closely observing glacier processes in Svalbard using time-lapse photography, in collaboration with the University of Edinburgh. Here, we can see changes at Kronebreen, a glacier in Svalbard that terminates into a large fjord. This sequence shows one image every 10 minutes over a 4-hour period in the summer season of 2016. The tongue of dirty water protruding from the front of the glacier is an outflow of fresh glacier water that has travelled up through the water column from the base of the glacier. This is called a meltwater plume. Plume dynamics are being studied by scientists @NPIglaciology because they are considered to be a key process in melting at the ice-ocean interface. Scientists are also examining the influence of plume dynamics on ecological activity because, in addition, plumes provide vital feeding grounds for birds, seals and beluga whales in the region.

Good Morning!
This is Francesco. Francesco is from Sicily, was our glacial tour guide, I was voted hottest tour guide in Iceland for 2016. "I just learned what 'basic' means yesterday. It's like mainstream? Like not too impressive. Don't worry, my tour won't be basic." #glacierhiking #iceland #travel #travelblogger #travelandfood #travelphotography #foodandtravel #igersiceland #instaiceland #glacier #glaciers #glacierwaterfall #glacierclimb #explore #exploreiceland #pitredishes #sunday

Kämpfe nicht für die Aufmerksamkeit, denn wenn sie sich wirklich Sorgen machen würden, müsstest du dies nicht tun. ♡♡♡ ~Wer hat heute auch Eis gegessen? :P
Vörðutindur í Heinabergsfjöllum toppaður á laugardag, 1070 m.y.s. Frábær dagur á fjöllum! #mountains #iceland🇮🇸 #nature #naturephotography #glacier #nationalpark #hiking #hikingadventures
Glacier hike today! Still cannot get enough from Iceland's landscape! #travels #iceland #wanderlust #glacier #hike #vacayspam #traveling #skaftafell
#Repost @nasa ( @get_repost) ・・・ We've discovered a new mode of ice loss in Greenland. A new NASA study finds that during Greenland's hottest summers on record, 2010 and 2012, the ice in Rink Glacier on the island's west coast didn't just melt faster than usual, it slid through the glacier's interior in a gigantic wave, like a warmed freezer pop sliding out of its plastic casing. The wave persisted for four months, with ice from upstream continuing to move down to replace the missing mass for at least four more months. Seen here is the Rink Glacier in western Greenland, with a meltwater lake visible center. Credits: NASA #nasa #icebridge #earth #glacier #greenland #ice

Just about to go to "over the top" on an ice climb 📷: Ellert Gretarsson  #Iceland #IcelandicMountainGuides #itmiceland
Thrilling! 🇨🇭Hiked to the Glacier Gorges of Grindelwald for a 1km walk into the gorges. Melt-water will travel some 700m in the tunnel before cascading in a waterfall of about 110m into the gorge. #grindelwald #glacier #swissalps #switzerland #getwettour #h2o #naturegram #iceage
Awesome Hike with @d_omino surrounded by 3 branches of Europe's largest #glacier in #iceland #luckywewenticeland
Hadde en god tur opp til Briksdalsbreen i går 🗻 Nydelig natur // Had a great hike to Briksdal Glacier in wonderful weather yesterday ☀️ #briksdalsbreen #olderdalen #loen #loenskylift #stryn #sognogfjordane #visitnorway #glacier #hike #minivacay #naturephotography #nature #beautifuldestinations #beautifulnature #beautifulview #summeriscoming
First time up to helm #glacier. One of my favorites. Likely this glacier will be gone in the next 3-5 years. #hiking #selfie #slr #daytrip #squamish #whistler #canada #fall
This image is part of the book I made for my senior capstone, Higher Up the Mountain. Come see the whole thing THIS FRIDAY (!!) 4:30-7pm at the Sapp center for teaching at learning/old chem building on Stanford's campus. #21daysuntilgraduation #21days #graduation #gradproject #imadeabook #backcountry #skiing #merdeglace #glacier #earthpix #fantastic_earth #landscape #climbing #seniorcapstone #mountains #alps #chamonix #montblanc #ihopeyoulikeit

Forever dreamin' ☁️🌳
係冰川啲冰呀!🏔 原來除左藍色,係有黑色既冰架🙈 地球真係要好好愛護呀🤙🏻 #glacier #iceland #sostoked #yolo #instatravel
Backcountry hut dans les alpes du sud. Quand même très insane in the brain d'entendre des avalanches provenant des montagnes voisines !
The icy blueish of glacier ...n yes they have a name #hubbard #glacier #alaska 🇺🇸
On a marché sur la glace 🚀
The never ending season.. on the summit of the Aguille d'Argentière ready to descend the Glacier du Milieu. #chamonix #aguilledargentiere #glacier #summit #skimo #skitour #skitouring #scialpinismo #redfoxoutdoor
First day, in my sweat pants, straight from the airport. 공항에서 바로 츄리닝 입고 잘도 빨빨거리며 돌아댕김. 트라이포드 망가지고, 폴라로이드 절벽으로 굴러떨어지고, 티켓받고...케켘 왜이러니 나 ㅠㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ 이제 웃음밖에 안나옴😂😂😭😭😭 . . . #혼자댕기기힘듦 #허당끼분출 #나원래안이런데 #요즘내가아닌거같음 #내가내가아님 #alaska #anchorage #seward #solotrip #alonetrip #water #glacier #travel #traveler #photography #photographer #socal #cali #socalphotographer #globetrotter #daily #life #사진 #여행 #알라스카
