east-greenland

This is a satellite image taken from NASA’s Earth Observatory showing a gigantic display of sea ice flowing down the coast of Greenland. Taken on the 30th of December 2012, the image show tendrils of Arctic sea ice hitching a ride on the East Greenland Current. This current brings Arctic ice to the Southern tip of Greenland at the start of every winter. To make the image even more beautiful, a fresh blanket of snow makes it extra bright!
