To reveal the impact of climate change, Balog founded the Extreme Ice Survey (EIS), the most wide-ranging, ground-based, photographic study of glaciers ever conducted.  The project is featured in the documentary Chasing Ice, which won the award for Excellence in Cinematography at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival, was shortlisted for an Academy Award and received dozens of awards at film festivals worldwide.

Balog will share the latest photography and image sequences from the EIS. In this presentation, Balog and his team brave treacherous conditions—crevasses, rockslides, avalanches, temperatures down to -40 F. and frigid river crossings.  The lecture will provide a fascinating exploration of humanity's relationship with nature, and a profound understanding of how climate change is affecting our planet.
