NASA’s Landsat 8 satellite captured Helheim Glacier, Greenland. As can be seen from the comparative images (1972/2019), during the last 50 years, ice fronts have retreated, rocky peaks are more exposed, fewer icebergs drift to the ocean.
Helheim Glacier is one of Greenland’s largest outlet glaciers and is named after the world of the dead in Norse Mythology. It feeds the waters of the Helheim Fjord, a branch of the Sermilik (Egede og Rothes Fjord) system, where there are a number of other glaciers calving and discharging at rapid rates such as the Midgard Glacier.
The glacier back in 1972 is as follows.
