Sondrestrom Fiord: A Mind Blowing Geography Lesson
July 8, 2016
Sondrestrom Fiord is a broad fluvial plain near Kangerlussuaq, then deepens dramatically further down. I’ve been told it’s the longest Fiord in the world.
In the first Dark Snow field trip, three years ago today, Jason Box saved the mission by booking a hail mary chopper flight from Nuuk, at the bottom of this map, to Kanger, and then further, to the center of the ice sheet, where we obtained useful samples of the previous year’s melt layer.
One very mind blowing geography lesson.
