Ground Truth Trekking

Losing on two fronts

This forested fragment of Malaspina glacier is calving away on two sides, and the intervening forest is stretching, opening crevasses that swallow large trees. Projecting retreat rates from the last few years, this patch of forest will be completely gone in a handful of years. The upper part of the image is a lagoon, and ocean waves wash through during large storms. Read more about our Life on Ice expedition.
