Small photographic essay about the Martial Glacier, located in the Martial mountains, northwest of the city of Ushuaia. The glacier is named after the captain of the La Romanche boat, Louis Ferdinand Martial, commander of the French scientific expedition from 1882-1883 "Mission scientifique du Cap Horn".
The glacier is currently in retreat due to climatic changes caused by global warming. It is estimated that in decades the glacier could disappear completely.
