This video shows landscapes of Alaska. From glaciers in the Alaska Range, to the Interior's boreal forest and the Arctic tundra--this short movie highlights the importance and stunning beauty of Alaska's frozen lands. It contains footage taken by Alessio Gusmeroli during research expeditions to the study glaciers, snow and permafrost in Alaska. The soundtrack for this movie is "Arktika" by the Russian artist Mara, who kindly gave permission to use this song for research and education. It fits perfectly with the landscapes shown in the video.

Gulkana Glacier, Alaska

Girls on Ice is a unique, free, wilderness science program for high school girls that has been successfully run for 12 years in Washington State. The program provides young women with an intensive science-immersion experience through a backcountry expedition with professional glaciologists and mountaineers. In 2012, with the support of the Alaska Climate Adaptation Science Center (AK CASC), Girls on Ice was able to expand in a new direction: offering a Girls on Ice experience in Alaska primarily for Alaskan girls.
