They’re not just changing, they are disappearing, forever. What you’re about to see are collapsing glaciers captured by a team spread out across the Arctic. 

They witnessed the largest calving event ever filmed, more glaciers than ever before. 

As you watch these ancient landscapes break up and fall keep in mind these ice faces are massive -- some are over 100 metres tall. The team watched pieces of ice shoot up 180 metres  from the ocean.

“Like a city falling apart before your eyes,” one said.

It's horrifying and hauntingly beautiful.

Here’s team Director Jeff Orlowski for today’s time lapse, from the film Chasing Ice.
