Hangin’ on #2


Here’s the latest imagery of the Wilkins Ice Shelf from the European Space Agency’s amazing “webcam from space” page (the ice shelf is the black structure running from top left to bottom right — sea shows as white). This image was captured on Jan 24th, and clearly shows the narrow 2km neck referred to in my recent post. Take a look at the “webcam” — the animation is regularly updated as new images are processed. In Hot Topic, I remarked how satellite views of the earth enable my senses to work overtime — this is a fantastic near real-time example.
