A stormy day over the Patagonia Ice Cap just behind Cerro Fitz Roy on the border between Argentina and Chile. Technically this was shot from the Chilean hut on the ice cap. We took a day off here to let the weather pass by before continuing down the ice cap. #chile #argentina #patagoniaicecap #patagoniaicefield

This B&W picture is of the Perito Moreno Glacier located in the Los Glaciers National Park in the southern Patagonia region of Argentina. This glacier is 19 miles in length and comes from the Southern Patagonia Ice Field which feeds 48 glaciers in total. This ice field is the 3rd largest reserve of freshwater in the world. .

The Perito Moreno Glacier rises about 240 feet above the blue waters of Patagonia. The glacier is part of an ice field located in both Argentina and Chile and it covers about 121 square miles. Different from most glaciers, Perito Moreno is still growing! And if not for its magnitude, another reason to visit this Unesco World Heritage site is to watch the eventful crash of chunks of ice into the water. You can feel the ice breathing of the glacier and hear the powerful roar sound when that happens! ❄️ Photo credit: @ryokito.t📸

Patagonia 💙
___________________________________________
Today we finally had awesome weather again and we saved the best hike for our last day in the trekking capital of Argentina. The 360 degree view was breathtaking. Behind us you can see the mountain ridge depicted in Patagonia‘s (brand) logo - Mt. Fitz Roy!

2 May 2018 - While ESA’s CryoSat continues to provide clear insight into how much sea ice is being lost and how the Antarctic and Greenland ice sheets are changing, the mission has again surpassed its original scope by revealing exactly how mountain glaciers are also succumbing to change.

Glaciers all over the globe are retreating – and for the last 15 years, glacial ice has been the main cause of sea-level rise.

Apart from Antarctica, Patagonia is home to the biggest glaciers in the southern hemisphere, but some are retreating faster than anywhere else in the world.  This is because the weather is relatively warm and these glaciers typically terminate in fjords and lakes, exacerbating surface melting and causing them to flow faster and lose ice as icebergs at their margins.

There is a clear need to monitor and understand glacial dynamics, not only in Patagonia but globally.  However, with around 200 000 glaciers worldwide coupled with their remote rugged terrain, maintaining local monitoring systems is extremely difficult.

Turning to space, satellite radar altimeters have been mapping ice loss from the large sheets for the last 25 years, but the footprint of this type of instrument is generally too coarse to monitor the smaller mountain glaciers.  Fortunately, a new way of processing CryoSat data now makes it possible to map these glaciers in fine detail. .

The technique of swath processing differs from conventional radar altimetry. Using CryoSat’s novel interferometric mode, whole swaths, rather than single points, of elevations can be computed. This is yielding more detail that ever before on how glacial ice is changing. .

ESA’s Earth Explorer CryoSat mission is dedicated to precise monitoring of changes in the thickness of marine ice floating in the polar oceans and variations in the thickness of the vast ice sheets that blanket Greenland and Antarctica.

#tbt the coldest ride so far. 🇨🇱 The hitch from Villa O' Higgins to Cochrane in December was b-e-a-utiful but my goodness it was cold. Ended up in my sleeping bag, snugged between my backpack and the siderail.

Getting excited to make my way back to the mountains for more of the same 😁

Missing Patagonia! Specifically, missing the altitude that doesn't make me want an oxygen cylinder. One more week of hard trekking ahead - Rainbow Mountain then the Salkantay Trek to Machu Picchu, then all cruisin' in the Galapagos baby!

#GlacierGrey and the #PatagoniaIcefield. I never thought I’d come within licking distance of an iceberg - an iceberg that shouldn’t really exist. #ClimateChange is the devil, kids.

Day 3: A Room with a View
Swipe left to watch us set up camp!
We set up camp above the shores of Viedma Lake, the gentle rolls of the lake and the thunderous sounds of glaciers and icebergs calving providing a soundtrack to our evening. The lake provided a fresh source of ice cold water. At night, our sheltered campsite, surrounded by trees, protected us from the cold Patagonian winds

The tiny trees will tell just how big those chuncks of ice really are...

The Southern Patagonia Icefield feeds the glaciers that fall into the Chilean fjords. It is the second largest ice field apart from those on the poles and currently covers an area of over 12000 sq km.

Day 3: Sunset on Viedma Lake
Another charismatic glacier looms on the horizon as we fill water bottles for dinner. As we boiled the glacier water to fill our Mountain Meals, we could hear the thundering roar of the icebergs and glacier calving in the distance.

Day 3: Arrival to Viedma Lake (and the moment I fell in love with glaciers)
Finally, after a grueling 3 hour descent, grabbing into tree branches for balance and climbing down rock walls (note the lack of photos taken during this part of the trail, which is labeled as “damaged” on our trail map), we arrived to our campsite - a lakefront sheltered area with a view of Viedma glacier and her icebergs. Viedma glacier is one of the Southern Patagonian Ice Field’s 48 outlet glaciers, feeding into Lake Viedma. This ice berg is one of many that calved off of Viedma’s 2km wise glacier terminus.

Day 3: Into the Glacier Valley
Please swipe left to see the full effect of standing on a precipice.
We had climbed straight up gravel and rocks, our footing unsure. Any wrong move and that person, and all those below them on the mountainside, would fall. We were making the final turn around the Cerro Huemul, up and over into the Glacier Viedma valley below. A two hour descent awaited us ahead. But here, we were on top of the world. The Southern Patagonian Ice Field stretched behind us, and below a crystallized blue glacial lake with tiny white specks that would soon loom large as icebergs.

#ods is kicking it up a notch this semester. This weekend and next are #iceclimbing, then on to avalanche theory, glacier travel, and mountaineering. All this ends with a traverse of the #juneauicefield in May. Beyond that, the goals are #denali, #brooksrange, and the #patagoniaicefield. Gotta learn to downhill ski first, though--#terrifying!

Day 3: The Southern Patagonian Ice Field
Today we were lucky with the weather. The Ice Field that was obscured by grey, low hanging clouds yesterday became clear today, with blue skies illuminating ice for as far as we could see. White snow covered mountains emerge from the distance. I can’t help but wonder what unexplored land lies behind them.

Day 4: The Southern Patagonian Ice Field
After spending the night in a valley, we returned to the rocky ascents and descents bordering the Southern Patagonia Ice Field. The Southern Patagonian Ice Field is the third largest contiguous body of ice in the world, following Antarctica and Greenland and covering an area of approximately 13,00 km squared. It’s so large that parts of it are still unexplored (next year’s adventure?) and its border between Chile and Argentina is contested.

Climbing in the darkness for 4 hours, coughing up blood, legs feeling like jello, open sores on my hips and brutal winds and snow as we reached the lookout. Then taking cover being a boulder to wait for the sun to work its magic as the feeling drained from my fingers and toes... worth it.

You think to yourself “I’ve LIVED on a glacier in Alaska, this one can’t be that special”. And then you see it and get excited like a kid on Xmas morning. The excitement can’t be contained and when you grab a chunk of ice from the water you become overwhelmed with the realities we so easily ignore in our day to day lives.

Photos don’t do it justice. Patagonia is incredibly beautiful but very hard to photograph. Clouds, rain, and winds strong enough to knock you over make it difficult to capture what your eyes see. Not to mention finding the energy to pull out a heavy DSLR after hiking the equivalent of a half marathon.

Short video clip of our Glacier Trek on #PeritoMoreno glacier thats part of #PatagoniaIceField, largest ice field outside of Antartica and Greenland artic. Amazing that this glacier is growing by 2 meters every day. My pictures don't do justice to this massive 5km wide 50km long glacier. It was an awesome adventure wearing crampons and trekking up the glacier to see the multiple shades of blue ice, rivers, waterfalls, cracks and crevases on the glacier. At the end of the trek, we were offered Whiskey with the glacier's ice to celebrate. #ElCalafate #PatagoniaArgentina #LosGlaciaresNationalPark #PeritoMorenoGlacier #Beautifuldestinations #ExploringTheWorld @ Perito Moreno Glacier National Park, Patagonia Argentina.

More glacier goodness from the Southern Patagonian Ice Field. This time it's Glacier Grey at the Torres Del Paine National Park in Chile. The Ice Field is yuuuge.

Roped up and traversing the Patagonia Ice Cap on the west side of Cerro Torre right on the Argentine and Chilean border with a spectacular view in just about every direction. This was a @verticalshotexp last January (2016). It was pretty grueling with heavy packs but it was also an insanely amazing trip with spectacular weather. #verticalshotexpeditions #patagonia #argentina #chile #patagoniaicefield #patagoniaicecap

Remembering our incredible icefield expedition back in 2010. Adela, Cerro Torre and Fitzroy in the back. The southern icefield in Patagonia, Chile, stretches for some 400km long and 40 km wide and is one of worlds least explored areas.
Nasty weather can last for weeks and meters of snow cover your tent in hours. Access is not easy as a wild ocean on one side and long approaching journeys and mountain passes on the other side keep it away from most humans.

As we headed to Lautaro Volcano the morning of this picture our last stove broke down, days from the closest source of water (well, liquid water). We had to rush to the previous deposit to try to fix at least one of them. Luck was on our side and some 10 hours later we were able to drink water again and continue the expedition. The storm kept us inside for 7 days and when it was gone satellite weather report made us think Lautaro was too far into the snowcap so closer objectives were climbed.

Storm clouds rolling in over the Patagonia Ice Cap as seen from the Chilean Hut. For years I dreamt of traversing the ice cap and also wanted to check out Cerro Torre from the backside. While working with @verticalshotexp I got the opportunity to explore the ice cap. My thanks to them and those that joined us on this journey last year. One of these days I'll have to get back down there and explore a bit more. #patagonia #patagoniaicefield #patagoniaicecap #chile #argentina #icecap @nikonusa #nikon

The ice encrusted top of Cerro Torre, as seen from the west on the Patagonia Ice Cap. This image was shot with a 300mm lens so I could analyze one of the climbing routes in detail. As a climber I took an inordinate number of images of this peak. With clear weather it felt like being "in the throne room of the mountain gods" - a phrase made famous by Galen Rowell's book of the same name. As can be seen, and as every climber knows, Cerro Torre is serious business and not for the faint of heart. I can't wait to get back down to El Chalten, Argentina and explore this area again. These mountains are like a magnet that draws climbers to them. #cerrotorre #elchaltén #elchalten #argentina #patagonia #patagoniaicecap #patagoniaicefield @nikonusa #nikon @verticalshotexp
