Austfonna Glacier waterfall on Svalbard

Below, sea ice off Svalbard, Norway in 2004. Svalbard lies between 74 to 81 degrees North. Once common here, says Strand, sea ice is no longer found off these islands. By 2012, the photographer had to travel as far north as the 82nd parallel to find summer sea ice.
