Figure 3-2.–Landsat 1 MSS digitally enhanced false-color composite image of the south slope of the Greenland ice sheet northwest of Julianehåb (Qaqortoq), South Greenland on 13 September 1980. The image shows the well-de ned edge of the Inland Ice which spreads over the lowlands of South Greenland toward the outer coast. In some areas, the snowline is clearly visible. The marginal areas of the Greenland ice sheet have undergone severe thinning during the late 20th century and early 21st century.
