Fjords in East and West Greenland
Here's a pair of images from Flickr user Lori Greig showing the east and west coasts of Greenland. The first image shows the Kangerdlugssuaq fjord in East Greenland. This mighty fjord is over 10 kilometers wide in the central part of the image. It stretches over 70 kilometers from its head, at the Syrtegletscher in the lower left, to where it meets the sea at left-center.
The next image provides a great view of the snow-covered landscape around the Kangerdluar-ssugssuaq fjord on Greenland's west coast. This fjord is much narrower than the Kangerd-lugssuaq, measuring just 400 meters across at its narrowest point in the lower left. The Pakitsup Qaqai mountains lie to the north of the fjord, in the center of the image, and Umanarssugssuaq Island is offshore at the left.
Here's a wider view of the same fjord, taken by Flickr user mbruck77 in February, 2007.
