Greenland coastal mountains and ice, satellite image. This region is on the south-eastern coast of Greenland, with numerous fjords funnelling glacial ice to the Atlantic Ocean. During the summer melting season, newly calved icebergs join slabs of sea ice and older, weathered icebergs in an offshore slurry that the southward-flowing East Greenland Current sculpts into the patterns seen here. The red areas are the exposed rock of mountain peaks. Image data obtained by the Landsat 7 satellite on 21 May 2001.
