Summary The last five years have seen rapid developments in camera technology. The result is a wealth of new footage capturing incredible natural phenomena, up close and in stunning detail. This rich seam of filmed material has become an invaluable resource for scientists, pushing their research into uncharted territory. Dangerous Earth delves into this fantastic bank of footage to uncover the latest scientific advances, with each episode focusing on a different subject – volcanoes, auroras, avalanches, icebergs, hurricanes and lightning. Back in the studio, some of the world's top scientists conduct intriguing experiments and unpack the findings from this spectacular visual database, bringing the science to life in an entertaining and accessible way. In this episode, Dr Helen Czerski reveals the latest scientific insights into icebergs. From side-scanning sonar that scrutinises the edge of glaciers where icebergs are born, to satellite images that show how icebergs create hotspots for life and eyewitness pictures that give us a unique glimpse of how they transform over time, we can now capture on camera the mysteries of icebergs - and how their lifecycle is intricately linked to our changing planet
