Glacier off Greenland coast.

Where icebergs roam free

In Ilulissat, a coastal town in western Greenland, people don't have to walk far to see millions of tons of icebergs calving away from the glacier each year into Disko Bay. Scientists from WHOI studying the glaciers are interested in learning if the ice sheet, and its bergy bits, are flowing faster into the sea as global temperatures rise. (Photo by Mark D.
