Caption: Dr. Ian Bartholomew taking measurements as part of a study to measure the speed of the receding Russell Glacier near Kangerlussuag, Greenland. The study is looking at how melt water is affecting the glacier's speed. It is thought that the melt water helps lubricates the glacier's base enabling it to flow faster.
