Nickys Nose Bluff
Icebergs anchor on the shoals in Green Bay...
The icebergs mass is 90% below the waterline. Its close proximity to shore belies the great height of the cliff extending into the depths below.
The calving of 10,000 year old Greenland glaciers
creates a flow of large icebergs that cross the North Atlantic to be swept by the tides of the Labrador current onto rocky shoals along the islands NE coast. Occasional strong NE breezes push the icebergs into the deep bays and inlets to be grounded and smashed against the rocks.
