#AnturusIceland

On October 20th 2016, the Anturus team headed to Iceland to create new Education Videos, Resources and Media!

The team situated themselves within the heart of Iceland’s famous south ring road to venture off to the waterfalls, glaciers, volcanoes, fissures and lakes.

GLACIAL EROSION RESOURCE

A lot of the world’s surface has been changed in a destructive way by glacial activity. That doesn’t mean it’s a bad thing, only that glaciers have carved out parts of the Earth’s surface to create many mountainous areas and valleys.

GLACIAL LANDSCAPES RESOURCE

Sometimes when there’s no ice around it’s hard to imagine how glaciers would have carved out the landscape. To imagine how a glacier would have travelled from the mountains across a landscape and eventually spreading and melting seems too big to even think about.

ICEBERGS RESOURCE

Icebergs are chunks of ice that float in water. Where a glacier meets the ocean they can float off into the oceans and around the globe. Sometimes glaciers calve off into lakes and iceberg lakes form. They float because they are less dense than the water they’re in.

RISING SEA LEVELS

We hear a lot about sea levels rising and why climate change is bad for that. Ice melting into the oceans will cause sea levels to rise, but there’s a difference between ice already in the sea, sea ice, and ice on the land, land ice.

SNOW TO GLACIER RESOURCE

When winter comes, many places get a fresh fall of snow every year. In lowland areas, often, the snow melts as the seasons warm up again.
In higher areas, there’s sometimes it stays
a little colder year around and this seasons snow fall gets added to the last. As these layers build up, the snow below gets squeezed into a more solid form, ice. Every year, some snow melts, and some snow is added.
