Located in Greenland, Ilulissat Icefjord is the mouth to the sea for the Sermeq Kujalleq glacier.

This glacier is one of the most active ones in the world with it’s large sheets of ice moving quickly down an icy stream into an iceberg covered fjord. This ice cap is the only one that still has ice from during the Quaternary Ice Age from 250,000 years ago. This ancient ice has helped us learn about climate changes in the past and even in the present day.

Today, snow replaces the amount of ice that melts on the ice cap, showing a fairly stable climate.
