Quelccaya, September 3, 1988

Being situated at 13.5 degrees South latitude, Quelccaya Ice Cap in Peru is the world’s largest tropical ice cap. The ice cap has been retreating rapidly and these images captured by the Thematic Mapper on the Landsat 5 satellite show the difference in its extent over a period of 22 years – from 1988 to 2010.
