Sortebrae - Pure-Landscapes

Sortebrae

The mighty Sortebrae glacier in East Greenland, Blosseville Kyst, shows an enormous retreat since we have taken the picture in July 1990 from a flight from Copenhagen to Kangerlugsuaq (Söndre Strömfjord) in West Greenland. The side glacier to the right, which had formed a perfectly shaped lobe when being merged with the main Sortebrae is completely gone in the Google maps satellite image from 2013.
