Late Night: The Thrill of the Calve

And now for something completely different:

“CHASING ICE” captures largest glacier calving ever filmed

I felt a thrill watching it, and I could feel the winds. I’m pretty sure the sound in real life was lots louder. The glacier retreated 8 miles in one hundred years, and then nine miles in the last ten years.

“On May 28, 2008, Adam LeWinter and Director Jeff Orlowski filmed a historic breakup at the Ilulissat Glacier in Western Greenland. The calving event lasted for 75 minutes and the glacier retreated a full mile across a calving face three miles wide. The height of the ice is about 3,000 feet, 300-400 feet above water and the rest below water.”
