Ice Stories:  Jakobshavn Isbrę Calving Timelapse, July 13 2008 (Clip)
Running Time:
00:00:45
The Jakobshavn Isbrę 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 (60x real-time speed) from glaciologist Mark Fahnestock 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.

Running Time:
00:02:14
While hiking back from a research site near Kangerlussuaq, Greenland, Ice Stories correspondent Billy D'Andrea happened upon a Peregrine Falcon scrape. Two falcons, not too thrilled that he was passing by their cliff-side nest, began circling and screaming to chase him off. In this video, listen for the sound of Wheatears (songbirds) chirping and yipping in the foreground.
