Arctic in Summer
October 17, 2013
This Envisat image features Baffin Island, visible in the lower right hand corner, the northwestern tip of Greenland, seen in the top right hand corner, and the ice-connected Queen Elizabeth Islands, the northernmost cluster of islands in the Canadian Arctic Archipelago. The Queen Elizabeth Islands include Ellesmere (the vertical land mass to the west of the dark-blue Baffin Bay), Devon (the bean-shaped island directly beneath Ellesmere), Axel, Heiberg and the Parry (seen directly west of Devon) and Sverdrup island groups (partially visible directly southwest of Ellesmere).
