The Changing Face of Iceland

The Changing Face of Iceland


As one of the most volcanic countries on earth and home to Europe's largest glacier, Iceland has earned the nickname "Land of Fire and Ice."

Climate change, however, threatens to redefine the geological composition of this Arctic country. This one-hour documentary is the third by Mark Terry on climate change in the Arctic. It chronicles the changes to land, water and people witnessed during his 2018 circumnavigation of the island nation.
