Icebergs in Disco Bay, Greenland

Year: 2010 Taken by: Peter Prokosch
The Icebergs from the Ilulissat Icefjord - a UNESCO World Heritage Site - in Disco Bay/Greenland are the largest to be found in the Arctic. Latest research concludes that ice loss from both Greenland and Antarctica is accelerating, and that the ice sheets’ impact on sea level rise in the first half of the 21st century will be substantially higher than previous studies had projected.
