Ice-Watch project

In the summer of 2021 a team of filmmakers, glaciologists and science communicators installed two time-lapse cameras at Breiðamerkurjökull, the glacier that feeds Iceland's world famous Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon. We knew that Breiðamerkurjökull is receding rapidly but the melt that we recorded in just six weeks surprised even the experts.

We are now raising funds to help double down on our efforts to monitor and record these fast-paced changes. By adopting a time-lapse camera you will get exclusive monthly updates direct from the glacier’s edge and your donation will support the Ice-Watch project's long-term mission to promote a clear visual understanding of Iceland's glaciers, and what they tell us about the world's climate. Adopt a time-lapse camera here.


We are now raising funds to install more time-lapse cameras in Southeast Iceland. Visit the GoFundMe page to find out more.
