Greenland Ice Sheet
The Greenland Ice Sheet covers nearly 80 percent of Greenland’s surface, feeding glaciers from one end of the island to the other. As ships make their way through Prince Christian Sound, passengers can catch sight of the ice sheet on the northern side of the fjord, although the edges, especially in the southern part of the ice sheet, have begun melting in recent years. In some area meltwater rivers may be visible as melted ice forms pools and streams that flow from the ice sheet into the seawater of the fjord.
