Nature Videos: “A Georgia Winter” By Mark Williams

Filmed and Edited by: Mark Williams

Significant snow and ice is uncommon here in North Georgia as our recent winters have been much warmer. Here are a few scenes that I have assembled of those rare occasions during the past 2 years at Amicalola Falls and my home.

Top New Travel Videos: “Heart Of The Arctic Winter” In Norway (4K)

Filmed and Edited by: ADRIEN MAUDUIT (Night Lights Films)

Believe it or not, we didn’t have that much of a winter. Even in Arctic Norway! Since November, 13 consecutive extra-tropical cyclones have brushed the coast of Norway affecting even the coldest places of the country. As a consequence, lots of positive temperatures and rain on top of the snow, somehow destroying the typical arctic wonderland.

However in between the lukewarm rainstorms, the cold came back and allowed for short periods of freezing temperatures and snow. In these moments it was important for me to get out there whenever I could and capture all I could get. Cold also meant clearer skies and as a result aurora. Nonetheless it was never as easy as that because of the solar minimum we are at. It means lower auroral activity and fewer big shows.

Weather Science: NASA Launches “IMPACTS” Campaign To Study East Coast Winter Storms

This winter, NASA is sending a team of scientists, a host of ground instruments, and two research aircraft to study the inner workings of snow storms. The Investigation of Microphysics Precipitation for Atlantic Coast-Threatening Snowstorms, or IMPACTS, field campaign will be the first comprehensive study of East Coast snowstorms in 30 years.
