East Greenland nunataks

This pair of images from Flickr user c(h)ristine shows the nunatak fields of East Greenland, southwest of Cape Brewster. In the first image, looking southwest, isolated nunataks rise in the foreground, and larger mountain ranges loom closer to the sea in the background. At the upper right, stretching toward the upper center, is the massive Christian IV Glacier.

East Greenland nunataks

In this image, which slightly overlaps the previous one, we see parallel rows of nunataks rising through the ice. The uneven surface in the center foreground is probably the result of mountains beneath the ice that don't quite rise high enough to penetrate the ice. The Christian IV Glacier is visible in the upper right corner.
