Iceberg near Nuugatsiaq, Baffin Bay, Greenland, 2009.

Was digging through my unpublished images and stumbled across some surprises – and here’s one. This iceberg was photographed near Nuugaatsiaq, Baffin Bay, Greenland, during a Greenpeace expedition in 2009. 

The ice  massively compacted snow comes from Greenland’ ice sheet.

 According to research published in 2023, Greenland’s average annual melt between 2017 and 2020 was 20% higher than when I visited ten years ago, and seven times higher higher than in the early 1990s.
