Ilulissat ice fjord was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site in 2004. The Eastern source of Ilulissat fjord is Jakobshavn Glacier, which is the glacier with the largest flow in the northern hemisphere. Glaciers flow 20 to 35 meters per day, and 20 billion tons of icebergs break up and drain out of fjords every year. Many of these icebergs are huge (up to one kilometer), so high that they run aground in the fjord. Sometimes they have to wait for many years before being broken by the power of glaciers and icebergs flowing up the fjord. After the broken iceberg flows out of the sea, it initially flows north along the current, then turns south and flows into the Atlantic Ocean. Larger icebergs usually do not melt until 40-45 degrees north latitude (farther south than Britain and at the same latitude as New York City).
