Moon Rising Over Greenland

Moonrise Over Greenland

The moon rises over the Denmark Strait and Greenland’s east coast during an October 2008 expedition onboard the research vessel Knorr. Led by WHOI scientist Robert Pickart, researchers spent a month exploring waters flowing through the Denmark Strait into the Irminger Sea. Located between Greenland and Iceland, the Denmark Strait is a critical checkpoint through which cold, dense waters from the north flow into the main body of the North Atlantic Ocean.
