A Pléiades stereo pair has been acquired on 2016-Oct-01 just a few days after the second glacier collapse in the Aru mountains. The panchromatic band has 0.5 m resolution, which allowed us to generate a post-event digital elevation model of the area. From this digital elevation model and the Pléiades 2 m multispectral imagery, Etienne Berthier generated these stunning 3D views of the aftermath...

Preliminary estimates of the volume detached from the glaciers are 66 Mm3 (first, north one) 83 Mm3 (second, southern one).
