This video shows landscapes of Alaska. From glaciers in the Alaska Range, to the Interior's boreal forest and the Arctic tundra--this short movie highlights the importance and stunning beauty of Alaska's frozen lands. It contains footage taken by Alessio Gusmeroli during research expeditions to the study glaciers, snow and permafrost in Alaska.

The soundtrack for this movie is "Arktika", and is by the Russian artist Mara, who kindly gave permission to use this song for research and education. It fits perfectly with the landscapes shown in the video. The video was prepared to showcase UAF's Arctic research in a presentation by John Eichelberger about the University of the Arctic.
