Kennicott Glacier Time Lapse Traverse (2013 - 2015)
Operation IceBridge collected airbourne lidar data over Kennicott Glacier, Alaska in 2013, 2014, and 2015. These datasets were then rasterized and intersected to find a common data collection path where all three years of data overlapped. This overlapping data is then cycled, revealing a time lapse that shows the glacier's natural movements over a three year period.
Rasterized lidar data of Kennicott Glacier, Alaska from 2013 to 2015. The camera starts at the southern part of the glacier and moves northward along most of it's length. This animation is an overlay with an alpha mask that has been coregistered to a digital elevation map of the same region for easier editing.
