Landsat satellites captured images of the Columbia Glacier in Alaska from 1986 to 2011. The glacier originates in the Chugach Mountains and has retreated rapidly creating a new fjord. The image shows ice in blue and vegetation in green. The dark blue that represents ocean water has opened and crept 12 miles (20 kilometers) up the mountain where the glacier used to be during the Landsat observations.
The mosaic of images was crafted by the Scientific Visualization Studio at the Goddard Space Center.
