Grönland in 4K


Since 8 years I’m traveling to this magical country. Today quiet and untouched places are becoming more and more rare. On my first visit to Greenland, I was fascinated by the incredible power of nature that can be felt everywhere. But during the last years things have changed. The amount of icebergs is increasing savagely. Glaciers I’m visiting every year are retreating not meters but kilometers a year and the unending amount of ice seems to be endless. There is nothing more beautiful than an iceberg – everyone is unique and the light reflecting from its surface is magical. It’s sad how close beauty and decay can be seen in an iceberg. This movie is is an appreciation to the ice – for me the most amazing aggregate state of water.

Der tiefste Klang der Erde

..also geologisch verstanden-

For the first time, scientists have placed a titanium-encased hydrophone on the ocean floor at the bottom of the Pacific Ocean’s Mariana Trench, located about 11,000 meters below sea level

Da unten ist mehr los als erwartet:

“You would think that the deepest part of the ocean would be one of the quietest places on Earth,” Robert Dziak, a NOAA research oceanographer and chief scientist on the project, said in a statement. “Yet there really is almost constant noise from both natural and man-made sources. The ambient sound field at Challenger Deep is dominated by the sound of earthquakes, both near and far, as well as the distinct moans of baleen whales and the overwhelming clamor of a category 4 typhoon that just happened to pass overhead.”
“There was also a lot of noise from ship traffic, identifiable by the clear sound pattern the ship propellers make when they pass by,” Dziak added.
