Since I have problems uploading this animation (load-restrictions?) it is 2,3 mb only ::)

You can see it here hopefully! If not please report back ;)

It works just fine.  Thanks!


Zachariae Ice Stream June 17 2013 note all the late 2012 icebergs yellow dots, terminus position which has retreated since July 2012 and the rift that promises to release more icebergs as soon as the ice has cleared.

As Mauri noted above there is action to be watched this season, there was a calving event last season on August 20 2012, this is clearly seen on the 3 following image:
