Balog has found his calling in "the contact zone," as he calls it, between man and nature. He shot the aftermath of the 1980 Mount St. Helens eruption, the December 2004 tsunami, and Hurricane Katrina.
More than just providing beautiful, unique images, the Extreme Ice Survey may help scientists understand why glacial melt is increasing so rapidly, what causes the significant calving events, and what must be done to save these giant rivers of ice from disappearing forever.
