Founded in 2007 by James Balog, the Extreme Ice Survey (EIS) is an innovative, long-term photography project that integrates art and science to give a “visual voice” to the planet’s changing ecosystems. EIS imagery preserves a visual legacy, providing a unique baseline—useful in years, decades and even centuries to come—for revealing how climate change and other human activity impacts the planet. EIS is a program of the Earth Vision Institute.
