James Balog, extreme ice survey

Jardan and I saw this program on Nova about James Balog and his extreme ice survey, where he was tracking the EXTREME melting of glaciers. Beautiful but heartbreaking. Check these out. There's this incredible aquamarine ice formations and water that have been at the bottom of the glacier, but which have surfaced as the glaciers have melted. All the air was pushed out of them, resulting in the amazing color. I can't copy/paste the photos, so here are a few of my favorite links:
