To a geologist, glaciers are among the most exciting features on Earth. Though they seem to creep along at impossibly slow speeds, in geologic time glaciers are relatively fast, powerful landscape artists that can carve out valleys and fjords in just a few thousand years


Thought ATS would enjoy this. Glaciers are quite beautiful formations of nature.

Read the whole article here Stunning Views of Glaciers From Space. It includes descriptions of all of the pictures show, and some additional pica as well.

Stunning images my friend, the perspective achieved from space is truly amazing. Thanks for posting these beautiful images of our planet from far above, something we as a race have only recently been able to achieve and show the splendor of.

Thanks jkrog, I never knew the glaciers had such "flow" to them. They are very beautiful, and hopefully they stick around for a while!

The last one in your photo lineup looked like a gigantic polar bear rug.

I noticed the "flow" too. On the first few pic, I couldn't tell exactly which mass was the glacier though.

Thank you for putting these up.

Great pictures!

I had the pleasure of hiking on glaciers and taking a few boat rides near them while I went on vacation in Alaska.

Hearing a glacier calve and send pieces of its body slamming into the sea is amazing, and the sound it creates is truly awe inspiring and a little scary. Anyway, good post!
