The Uummannaq district encapsulates 11 ice-sheet outlet glaciers (streams of ice from the ice cap to the sea) which terminate at the Sea. These 11 glaciers empty into a fjord system that is joined to Baffin Bay by a channel. Over the past decade, this area has undergone a surface-temperature rise of nearly 2 degrees.
