What colour is a glacier?

By Claire

I came across a link to the following video titled, “What color is a glacier?”

As much as I love the video itself (which I really do!), what I love even more is the fact that this video was put together by a PhD student, in order to promote their work and make it more accessible to the general public.

The video comes with the following blurb, “It sounds like a simple question – what color is a glacier? This video, compiled from 6 field seasons around the Arctic and Antarctic, shows you just how complex that answer is, why it matters, and what I do as a researcher to help answer that question.

My name is Allen, and I’m a glaciologist.
