Axel Hieberg Island, Canada
August 2, 2010
Axel Heilberg Island in Canada's arctic is shown in an April 8, 2008, image. Note the blocks of ice that have calved off the foot of the glacier (middle-bottom), as well as the melt feature and stream (bottom-right). This photograph was obtained from on board the NASA P-3B aircraft during ARCTAS, a NASA-funded contribution to POLARCAT, a core activity of the 2007/2008 International Polar Year.
