You need to zoom in on this gif from hycom to see the impressive outburst of freshwater from Jakobshavn around the 11th
For the casual viewer who is not certain where Jakobshavn Glacier is located (thanks to Wikipedia):
Arctic ice is healthy for children and other living things.

Thanks Tor
Interesting image of standing waves out in Disko, my guess is turbulence in the ocean leading to evaporation where warmer waters are exposed.

I had a go at an animation, close up is too stacato could almost be random images the big picture's not much better
