Caption: This is a Canadian researcher maintaining a time-lapse camera overlooking the Belcher Glacier, Devon Island, Nunavut, Canada. Monitoring the ice that breaks off from the glacier helps the researchers constrain how much ice is calving into the ocean. This image relates to a paper that appeared in the May 17, 2013, issue of Science, published by AAAS. The paper, by Alex S. Gardner at Clark University in Worcester, MA, and colleagues was titled, "A Reconciled Estimate of Glacier Contributions to Sea Level Rise: 2003 to 2009."
