Wider Image: Earthprints: Aletsch Glacier 
The Aletsch Glacier is pictured from the Eggishorn summit in Fiesch, Switzerland, August 22, 2015. One of Europe's biggest glaciers, the Great Aletsch coils 23 km (14 miles) through the Swiss Alps - and yet this mighty river of ice could almost vanish in the lifetimes of people born today because of climate change. The glacier, 900 metres (2,950 feet) thick at one point, has retreated about 3 km (1.9 miles) since 1870 and that pace is quickening.

The Perito Moreno glacier is seen after the rupture of a massive ice wall near the city of El Calafate in the Patagonian province of Santa Cruz, southern Argentina, March 4, 2012. The glacier, a massive tongue of ice in the Santa Cruz province that covers 250 square kilometres (97 square miles), advances yearly into a lake, known as Lago Argentino. As Perito Moreno moves forward, it cuts off a river feeding the lake. Water builds up pressure and slowly undermines the ice, forming a tunnel until ice comes tumbling down. The phenomenon repeats itself at irregular intervals, with the last major ice falls occurring in 2008. REUTERS/Andres Arce (ARGENTINA - Tags: ENVIRONMENT)

The remains of an abandoned house damaged by erosion are seen on a beach in Grand-Lahou on the southern Ivory Coast in this picture taken June 8, 2010. When the ocean swallowed up their homes, it also divided the people of this sleepy Ivorian fishing village -- half of them moved inland, the other half stayed to brave the waves. In populated coastal West Africa, rising sea levels linked to the melting of the polar ice caps are conspiring with coastal erosion to slowly submerge communities. Picture taken June 8.

This figure shows a comparison at the same scale (about 5 meters--16 feet--per pixel) of the 1997 Mars Pathfinder landing site (L) and a representative portion within the primary landing ellipse designated for the Mars Polar Lander (R) released August 25 by NASA. The Mars Polar Lander spacecraft is scheduled to land on Mars December 3,1999. The proposed landing site (R) has a random arrangement of very low ridges and grooves and that suggests the surface has been exposed to erosion by ablation of ices. When the picture on the right was taken, the surface was still mostly covered by winter-time carbon dioxide frost. Once the spacecraft lands on Mars, a three-month mission will begin as scientists study the planet's climate history. BW ONLY
