Here’s a huge waterfall spouting from the ice edge of Brasvell Glacier. No, glaciers in the Arctic aren’t supposed to do that. Glacial waterfalls like this one have been erupting with alarming frequency in Arctic regions–and is as good an image as any to wrap this slide show with. After all, when centuries-old chunks of ice start melting in the Arctic, it’s hard to deny we’ve got ourselves one hell of a problem.
