Up Close View Of Earth’s Climate Change From Drone Camera
There is very little on-the-ground data that researchers have to show how fast the earth’s polar ice melt is happening.
This mission of this recent expedition was to collect actual data to help scientists better understand how fast the ice is melting, and predict rising sea levels.
While there, NY Times staff member Josh Haner was able to capture this beautiful, and terrifying footage of the ice melt with his drone camera.
Part of this drone video was used as an exciting interactive online feature that shows the melting of earth’s the largest ice chunk.
The cold temperatures limited the drone’s batteries to about 8 minutes flight time, so the flight had to be very carefully planned.
Also, the brittle nature of the ice made it too dangerous to recover the drone if it crashed!
Watch the video if the ice melt below, and share what you think about this!
