Mapping the Frozen Lifeline

British Columbia’s snow- and ice-covered mountains contain life-giving water for the people and creatures living below.

This episode is part of our series Bare Earth, where we set out to see what the bare-earth landscapes of our coast will reveal when seen from above—way, way above.
