With a lecture on board, we earn a dinner and a visit to the glacier front with a boat of Ocean Wide Expeditions.
The wind blows all ice back to the glacier. Fresh water from the glacier is like a well surfacing in front of the glacier.
The fresh water is lighter than the salt fjord water and floats on top. With this current, the spot is free of ice and zooplankton comes to the surface.
Many kittiwakes feed on this plankton. The picture above shows this location, where the water turns red from the ssdiment in the water.
