NASA has an impressive gallery of images that visualize the transcendental pace of climate and anthropogenic change for different areas. Below we show you some of the graphic comparisons of various phenomena that have occurred in glaciers and ice around the world.
Strange snowfalls on the edge of the Sahara desert
December 19, 2016 – December 27, 2016. A rarity in the Algerian area, Ain Sefra.
July 1, 2013 – June 24, 2018. A glacier on the edge of the Vavilov Ice Sheet in the Russian Arctic had crawled into the Kara Sea a couple of inches per day. But it went into overdrive in 2014, traveling up to 25 meters per day in late 2015.
Jorge Montt Glacier Retreat and HPS1 in Patagonia, Chile
September 18, 1986 – August 5, 2002. The 1986 image shows the region before a major retreat of the glaciers. The 2002 image shows a nearly 10-kilometer retreat from the Jorge Montt glacier at the bottom picture.
June 24, 2016 – July 21, 2016. The collapse of a glacial tongue, a glacier surge. Nine people in the remote village of Dungru were killed along with their herds of 350 sheep and 110 yaks. The largest ice avalanche ever recorded.
