Notes

Everybody knows the story of the Titanic and of the tragic accident that cost hundreds of lives. Digging into the details of this fatal event we can trace the most likely origin of the iceberg that sank this ship to a particular glacier in West Greenland. The Jakobshavn Glacier is a spectacular fast-flowing glacier fed from the Greenland Ice Cap that produces some of the most impressive icebergs in the Arctic. Currents in Baffin Bay move some of these blocks of ice south and out into the North Atlantic where they sometime reach major shipping lanes before melting away.
