This is a composite of photos I took on a trip to Iceland in July 2006 of the Sólheimajökull Glacier - a receding outlet glacier from the Mýrdalsjökull Ice Cap in southeastern Iceland. There are numerous glacial and fluvioglacial features present surounding the toe of the receding snout: polished and striated clasts, a subglacial river, eposed moulins, longitudinal and transverse crevasses, ice/basal till contact exposed, and a beautiful example of a sandur.
Wandering around the edge of the glacier provided excellent examples of in situ glacial processes. The most interesting was having the opportunity to explore the 'ice cave' at the snout of the glacier that had melted into a longitudinal crevasse exposing the subglacial stream and the ice/till contact. I've included a photosynth (again, resolution is a little low but all panoramas I take with new photos will be a Gigapan), a slideshow of photos from exploring the area, and a short movie taken inside the ice cave.
