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.

This lake stays frozen most of the year but everything is warming and the icesheet holding it back will melt one day and the lake should drain, atleast partly. Might even be a big flood in a few years(decades?) as the lake is 10km wide. It's looks to be draining to north-west now, but if there is solid ground under that ice there the water level could stay high and later drain from north-east or south.

Anyone know if the lake has a name or what the mountains to it's north and west are called? I'm thinking the one to west is Sukkertoppen?

Picture is from end of august 2016 when the lake was mostly ice free.
