Sermeq-Avannarleq glacier, Greenland

A view of the Sermeq Avannarleq glacier in Western Greenland and its ice front, 29th May 2013. Take out the window during a flight from London to San Francisco. I did not know which glacier it was until late September when I found it on Google Earth at 70° 3’3.24″N, 50°19’1.22″W. Click on the photo for a full size view. According to the Byrd Polar Research Center, the Sermeq Avannarleq glacier lost 2 square miles from its ice front in 2007 and again in 2008. Increasingly rapid movement of this and other glaciers in south west Greenland  is likely caused by surface melt waters percolating into the glacier, warming and lubricating the ice. You can find more scientific details in the AGU press release about  Phillips et al., 2013.
