Several glaciers in northern Greenland have a large ice tongue (similar to Antartica's ice shelves) that floats over hundreds of meters of ocean waters. Here, we took advantage of a rift in the ice tongue of the 79 North Glacier, in NE Greenland, to sample ocean properties under the glacier. (August 2009) (Photo by E. Phillips)
