Did anyone notice anything unusual at Tracy Glacier in Inglefield Bredning recently? Attached is a map which shows locations.

Hello Andreas, thanks for last time! Yes there was calving activity over the last 30 days, and the glacier is in record retreat territory as far as I can see for now.

Whow ... I did not even know that there was LandSat in 1973. Thank you so much, Espen. I just passed your imagery to the Danish scientist who alerted me to this calving event that the imagery your prepared demonstrates so well. The HDMS Lauge Koch will do surveys in Upernavik Fjord next as we are heading north by north-west ;-)
