The results are the documentary Chasing Ice, which is playing at the Magic Lantern in Spokane (at least through Thursday). Watching glaciers melt is actually a lot more beautiful than you'd imagine, and seeing the effort it took to drag and install these cameras near the Arctic Circle (and Montana) is pretty awe-inspiring. Here's the trailer:
