Video slate image reads, "Greenland Ice Changes (GIC 5)Shows interpolated laser altimeter data over Greenland.  This scene picks up where GIC 1 leaves off, and the first half of it matches the camera motion paths of GIC 3 and 4 allowing for ealy dissolves with these other two scenes.  The camera then continues on to Greenland's east coast settling on the largest elevation decrease shown in the data."
