Southern Greenland glaciers
This is a great series of sharp, clear, high-resolution shots of southern Greenland by Flickr user dnskct. The first image is from near the eastern coast, and shows a view looking north. In the foreground on the left is the fjord known as Norrearm. Horizontally across the upper center of the image is the series of long, straight fjords along the southeastern coast of Greenland.
This is a dramatic image of one of the larger glaciers in southern Greenland. It is characterized by a very distinctive set of medial moraines, formed from debris carried by the tributary glaciers visible in the upper part of the image. The fjord at the bottom is called Kangersuneq Qingorleq, but I've been unable to determine the name of the glacier.
Compare the image above (taken September 12, 2006) with the image below of the same glacier, taken in October 2000. The extent of the glacier's retreat is clearly evident - it has retreated about three quarters of a mile over this six-year interval.
This shot is slightly west of the previous image, showing the same glacier on the right, along with a series of mountains and fjords.
