Kangersuneq Qingorleq Glacier
This is a big, impressive valley glacier in Southern Greenland. Even though it is only the beginning of July, it seems like all the winter snows have melted away from the surface, showing lots of beatiful detail: transverse crevasses, marginal crevasses, ogives, lots of medial moraines, lateral moraines, and a snout that is calving off icebergs into Kangersuneq Qingorleq fjord. This glacier's flow contains ice that comes off of the southernmost tip of Greenland's ice cap (as well as some other valley glaciers that contribute from the sides). Note: it was really, really hard to find out the name of this thing!
