Nunataks, East Greenland

This set of photos from Flickr user bopl_enroute cuts across the southern portion of Greenland, about 220 km north of the southern tip. The first photo looks south across Greenland's interior icecap, showing several nunataks protruding from the ice in foreground, and larger mountains in the background. The east coast of Greenland is on the right.

Sermilik Glacier, West Greenland

The next photo, about 260 km west, shows a close-up view of the glacier at the head of the Sermilik Fjord in West Greenland. Note the position of the ice front as compared to the Google Earth image at right; the position is very similar, showing little or no evidence of retreat.
