Ice Stories:  Jakobshavn Isbrae Calving Timelapse, June 5, 2007 (Clip)
Running Time:
00:00:24
The Jakobshavn Isbrae is among the fastest-moving glaciers in the world. The Jakobshavn is an outlet glacier, one of the few places where the giant Greenland ice sheet can shed ice in the form of gigantic icebergs. This timelapse video by Jason Amundson of the University of Alaska Fairbanks shows one of these massive calving events. Notice the dark blue ice that surfaces when the iceberg flips over in the ice-choked Ilulissat icefjord.
