The Patagonian icefields on a cloudless day

The MODIS sensor onboard the TERRA satellite platform captured this unusual cloudless day in Patagonia the 8 November 2011. The highlights of this image are the two great Patagonian Icefields of South America. These powerful ice masses have been experiencing several changes, including ice thinning and repeated episodes of glacier outburst floods.
