We land the helicopter on the ice sheet near the coast by Jakobshavn glacier. The Danish pilot, Karl, is shown tip-toeing over to where we are. There are deep crevasses here to avoid stepping into, some of them possibly hidden under the snow. Photo by John Maurer, CIRES/NSIDC, University of Colorado.
