This image shows land-fast ice thawing, breaking away from the Greenland's east coast to become sea ice. A large area at the entrance to the Scoresby Sund is ice free as the ongoing thaw advances. A colourful algal bloom is visible in the Denmark Strait between eastern Greenland and western Iceland. A cloud vortex is being cast in a northeasterly direction from the island of Jan Mayen.
