A May 2005 photo of the calving front of the Kangerdlugssuaq Glacier shows enormous calving activity. The glacier in east Greenland is now moving about 8.5 miles a year, or 126 feet per day. That's nearly three times faster than in the past.
The Helheim Glacier in southeast Greenland is now one of the fastest-moving glaciers in the world. The picture, taken in May 2005, shows high calving activity on the glacier associated with flow acceleration.
