Repeat Glacier Photography of Iceberg Lake

Repeat glacier photography is used to monitor changes in the appearance of glaciers over time. Scientists use historic photos of glaciers to locate the exact spot and time of year where the photo was taken. They then take a new photo which can be directly compared to the historic one to identify changes.
