Today’s Image of the Day from NASA Earth Observatory features the beautiful landscape surrounding mountain glaciers in Alaska.
Chris Larsen of the University of Alaska has been leading research flights for nearly a decade to monitor changes in the region’s ice and snow.
On August 19, 2018, this image was captured by NASA science writer Maria-Jose Viñas during a flight to explore Yakutat Icefield and nearby glaciers in southeast Alaska.
