Gerard de Geer glacier in northeastern Greenland.

The glacier zig-zags for over 60 miles from the icecap to the sea. It is named for Swedish geologist Gerard de Geer, who discovered the technique of using the laminated sediments (varves) in glacial lakes to determine the age of the sediments.

Northeastern Greenland contains many "Lands", small regions named after arctic explorers or their patrons. This photo shows four different Lands: In the foreground is Louise Boyd Land, in the center-left is J.L. Mowinckel Land, in the center-right is Andrée Land, and in the background is Arnold Escher Land.
