Caption: An Inuit fishing boat sails through massive icebergs from the Jacobshavn Glacier or Sermeq Kujalleq, drains 7% of the Greenland ice sheet and is the largest glacier outside of Antarctica. It calves large numbers of icebergs and is one of the fastest moving glaciers in the world at up to 40 meters per day (19 meters per day before 2002), and has also receded rapidly (40 km since 1850). An underwater moraine at the mouth of the fjord grounds the largest icebergs causing a backlog of ice that completely blocks the entire length of the fjord with ice.
