Icebergs floating at San Rafael Lagoon, which is of proglacial origin, as it was formed by the retreat of the San Rafael glacier, at the head of the Northern Ice Fields. The glacier is approximately 3,000 meters (9,800 feet) high and 40 kilometers (25 miles) long, making it one of the largest glaciers in the area. This glacier has lost about 13% of its surface area in the last 140 years.

Like many glaciers around the world, the San Rafael Glacier has been affected by climate change, and it has been shrinking in size over the past few decades. This has led to concerns about the long-term viability of the glacier, as well as its impact on the surrounding ecosystem. Aysén, Chile, 2022.
