Image Caption: Many glaciers along the continental divide of the Southern Andes empty into the large lakes on the western side of the mountains. This striking photograph, taken in April 1996, looks obliquely at the high mountains and glaciers in southern Argentina. Early morning light highlights the ice cliff at toe of a glacier which empties into Lake Argentino. Levels of snowpack, and relative position of the ends of glaciers allow scientists to asses the regional hydrology and apply their data to global climate models.
