Disko Bay, Greenland

Icebergs, broken off from the Jakobshavn Glacier (Sermeq Kujalleq), floating in Disko Bay after travelling through the Ilulissat Icefjord. Annually, the glacier drains about 6.5% of the Greenland ice sheet and is responsible for about 10% of all Greenland's icebergs. The increasing rate of melt from the Greenland ice sheet, which has a significant influence on the world's sea levels, has increased fears about the impact of rising sea level (150 million people around the world currently live within one metre of sea level) as some scientists predict that these will be by more than previously calculated one metre rise by the end of the current century.
