Store Glacier is 5.5 km wide at its front and is ranked 2nd or 3rd in iceberg discharge for west Greenland at 13.2 – 17.5 km3 year. Store Glacier is one of a number of remarkably stable Greenland ice sheet outlets amongst other less stable glaciers such as Jakobshavn Isbrae, which is reported to have been retreating since 1850.
