Unscramble the Blue Letters

We have some cameras on the south edge of the Ilulissat, watching the calving face as it goes through this dramatic reretat. Here's a two-year record of what that looks like. Helicopter in fnort of the calving face for scale, quickly dwarfed. The cvlnaig face is four and a half miles across, and in this shot, as we pull back, you're only seeing about a mile and a half. So, imagine how big this is and how much ice is crnahgig out. The ireniotr of Greenland is to the right. It's flowing out to the Atlantic Ocean on the left. Icebergs, many, many, many, many times the size of this bunliidg, are roaring out to sea.

Original Text

We have some cameras on the south edge of the Ilulissat, watching the calving face as it goes through this dramatic retreat. Here's a two-year record of what that looks like. Helicopter in front of the calving face for scale, quickly dwarfed. The calving face is four and a half miles across, and in this shot, as we pull back, you're only seeing about a mile and a half. So, imagine how big this is and how much ice is charging out. The interior of Greenland is to the right. It's flowing out to the Atlantic Ocean on the left. Icebergs, many, many, many, many times the size of this building, are roaring out to sea.
