Swirled Patterns of Sea Ice Off the Southeastern Shores of Greenland62.6N 42.6W
Sea ice creates a white paisley pattern parallel to the southeastern shores of Greenland. The swirled designs are created by the melting and freezing of ice in the shape of the offshore ocean currents.
The image stretches along the southeast coast down to Cape Farewell, the southernmost extent of Greenland. The cape is a headland on the southern shore of Egger Island, projecting out into the North Atlantic Ocean and the Labrador Sea.
