Southwestern Glacier Calving Front

A heavily crevassed glacier's calving front in a fjord in southwest Greenland seen from NASA's P-3B on Apr. 8, 2013. Ice bergs calve, or break off, the glacier's calving front into the water, which here is partially covered by a thin layer of sea ice. Credit: NASA / Christy Hansen
