Caption: Aerial view of the west coast of Greenland in spring, showing lakes and glacial ice between patches of barren ground. The coastal areas of Greenland are significantly warmer than the inland area, which is covered by a large, high ice sheet year-round. Filmed in 2012, a year which saw the lowest extent of Arctic sea ice since satellite measurements began.
