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.

The shape of Greenland’s Elephant Foot Glacier is so distinct that it stands out dramatically from its surroundings when viewed from space.
