Glacier Flows Between Mountain Peaks

A heavily crevassed glacier flows between mountain peaks in the Geikie Plateau region of eastern Greenland seen during an Apr. 11, 2013 IceBridge survey flight aboard NASA's P-3B airborne laboratory. Crevasses are giant cracks in the ice that form as the glacier moves downhill toward the ocean. Credit: NASA / Christy Hansen
