Image Caption: Water budgets are critical around the globe. Global warming or the potential for global warming is a hot topic. This unusual view, taken in the sunglint, shows glaciers calving into lakes and fjords in southern-most South America. This is a seasonal event, but frequent observations of the mountain snowpack, glacier endpoints, and amount of icebergs are important for assessment of the regional water budget as well as an indicator for regional climate changes.
