Jakobshavn Fjord

April 8, 2013
A view of Jakobshavn fjord from NASA’s P-3B aircraft during the Apr. 4, 2013 IceBridge survey of the Jakobshavn Glacier basin. Icebergs, seen here locked in place by sea ice, routinely break off the glacier, which produces around 10 percent of all Greenland icebergs and drains 6.5 percent of the Greenland ice sheet. Jakobshavn Glacier is one of the fastest moving ice streams in the world. Credit: NASA / Jim Yungel
