Caption

Meltwater river forming alluvial fans. This is a shallow, braided river. It is formed by a network of interconnected converging and diverging channels that resemble the strands of a braid. The rock and earth carried from upstream by the river is deposited as the river spreads out over a wide plain, creating alluvial fans that form the river banks, sand banks and shoals. This river consists of meltwater from glaciers and the winter snows that have melted on the plain during the brief warm period of the Arctic summer. Photographed on Clavering Island, North East Greenland National Park, Greenland.
