Another 🛰️ view on 2.5 years of iceberg #A68 drift from @CopernicusEU #sentinel1. No ☁️'s in these SAR images, but the contrast between the 🌊 & 🧊 decreases when the iceberg drifts North and starts to melt at the surface in summer.

Great work !!!
Detallada seqüència de la evolució de l'iceberg #A68 durant un període de 3 anys. Aquest, amb un immens volum, una llargada de vora els 80-100km i una amplada d'uns 50km, tot i que incert fins el darrer moment (depèn dels corrents marins) és molt probable que s'aproximi, o 🔽

How many frames is that, and did you manually add the red square to each of them? :)

345 frames "only" as I removed the most ☁️-y ones. Tracking was done manually indeed (thx to copy-paste luckily). I am experimenting with automated object trackers, but still not happy with end result.

An iceberg that dances. Is it going to collide with S. Georgia or will the surface currents take it to the south east? Great timelapse.
