Jakobshavn Glacier on the western coast of Greenland Greenland's Coast
Vibrant reds, emerald greens, brilliant whites and pastel blues adorn this view of the area surrounding the Jakobshavn Glacier on the western coast of Greenland.

Glacial silt gives rise to the green color of the water, and blue-colored melt ponds are visible in the bright white ice. A scattering of small icebergs in Disco Bay adds a touch of glittery sparkle to the scene.

The image was produced by the Multi-angle Imaging SpectroRadiometer on the Terra satellite.
