Another one bites the dust. A lake this time. Lots of sediment gone from downstream too. The days inbetween were cloudy on Sentinel-Hub playground.

Wow! Does it drain every year?

Not recently atleast. It had taken the lake many years to fill that high. Older images I see on Sentinel-Hub show the lake mostly filled with broken ice and at lower water level. Now that the big flood has carved large channels in that ice I doubt the lake will ever fill very high again.

Location is east of Maniitsoq. Can't seem to edit my first post to add location.
