Melt River, Petermann Glacier, Greenland. Photographed on the first leg of the Greenpeace Arctic Impacts expedition 07/07/2009. Peterman glacier is the longest floating glacier in the northern hemisphere. The floating area is 16km by 80km. A 100 square km chunk, about 5 billion tonnes of ice is about to break off – and we’re planning on being there to see it. More at weblog.greenpeace.org/climate
