Inland calving.
« on: May 25, 2013, 06:47:30 PM »
Unnamed Glacier North Greenland.

Just stumbled over an image from 1984, a massive calving happening ? far away from open water in N. P. Johansen Land (North Greenland). Calving width 2 - 3 km.
Probably due to emptying of a sub glacial lake. Luckily no people live in this area.
