I wondered how much the funnel-shaped form of Petermann Fjord has to Petermann Glaciers flow rate. The narrowest point in the fjord is approximately at Edith Glacier at the beginning of the fjord and the widest point is down by Porsild Glacier at the bottom of the fjord. What I find most interesting is that the calving front is now in an area of the fjord which only gets wider and wider, and logically this should affect the glacier's speed and subsequent calvings.
What are your opinions and thoughts about this, below you will find selected width points in the fjord, all points starting from the beginning of the fjord.
Width points at:
Edith Glacier 16,4 km
Unnamed Glacier 18,0 km
Belgrave Glacier 18,8 km (where the calving front is now)
Faith Glacier 19,0 km
Sigurd Berg Glacier 20,6 km
Porsild Glacier 21,4 km
