Elephant Foot Glacier

Romer is a land-locked freshwater fjord at the northern end of King Frederick VIII Land, near Greenland’s northeastern coast. The Lake is famous for its impressive Elephant Foot Glacier, a wide piedmont glacier with a strikingly shaped 5.4 kilometers (3 mi) wide terminal lobe flowing into the lake from the SE in its central part.

. یخچال طبیعی پای فیل در گرینلند – کجارو یخچال طبیعی پای فیل (Elephant Foot Glacier) یک اثر هنری خلق شده توسط طبیعت در شمال شرقی گرینلند است که از نمای بالای منظره‌ای فوق‌العاده را پیش چشمان هر بیننده‌ای به نمایش می‌گذارد. این یخچال شبیه خمیری است که روی تابه پهن شده باشد. فشار عظیم ناشی از میلیارد‌ها تن یخ ذوب شده از میان کوه‌ها عبور کرده، به دریا ریخته و این توده‌ی پنکیک شکل متقارن را به وجود آورده است. kojaro.com #kojaro #greenland #glacier #ElephantFootGlacier #کجارو #گرینلند #یخچال_طبیعی

Grönland’in kuzeydoğusundaki Fil Ayağı Buzulu, tavaya dökülen yağ, un ve hamur karışımını andırıyor gibi. Zilyon tonluk buzun yolundan sapan basıncı dağı kırarak ortasından geçip, yelpaze şeklindeki, kısmen simetrik bir loba yakın olan denize dökülmüş, ortaya da bu kare çıkmış. Bu tarz buzullar dağ eteği buzulu olarak bilinirler ve Fil Ayağı Buzulu da bu tarzın mükemmel bir örneği. Şekli öyle belirgin ve farklıdır ki, tepeden gözlendiğinde çevresindeki yapılardan rahatlıkla ayırt edilebilir. (Kaynak: @science.feed) ・・・ [The Elephant Foot Glacier in northeastern Greenland, looks like a bowl of batter that has been poured over a pan. The sheer pressure of the zillion-ton ice has broken through the mountain and spilled into the sea in a near symmetric, fan-shaped lobe. Such glaciers are known as piedmont glaciers, and the Elephant Foot Glacier is a perfect example of it. Its shape is so distinct that it stands out dramatically from its surroundings when viewed from high above.] ・・・ #bilimania #filayağıbuzulu #elephantfootglacier #greenland #grönland #glacier #buzul #ice #buz #dağ #mountain #danimarka #denmark #doğa #tabiat #nature #bilim #science #merak #curiosity #keşif #discovery #picoftheday #photooftheday #instapic #instaphoto
