Petermann Glacier, Greenland

$69.00 USD

Print Description

This natural-color satellite image of Petermann Glacier, offered by Customaps, was collected on August 14, 2015 by NASA's Landsat 8 satellite. The Glacier grinds and slides toward the sea along the northwestern coast of Greenland, terminating in a giant floating ice tongue.

Like other glaciers that end in the ocean, Petermann periodically calves icebergs. A massive iceberg, or ice island, broke off of the Petermann Glacier in 2010. Nearly two years later, another chunk of ice has broken free. Air temperatures in the region had increased by roughly 0.1ºC (0.2ºF) per year since 1987, but that air temperatures have minimal effect on the Petermann Glacier. Ocean temperatures likely exert a greater influence, but the time-series data for ocean temperatures in this region is not old enough to establish a clear trend.

Our map posters are printed on a premium 10 mil (235 g/m2) thick cellulose based paper. Environmentally friendly, it is PVC free and recyclable. It features a satin finish with low glare. Saturated with latex for durable indoor and temporary outdoor use.

Strength, tear-resistance, flexibility, and the ability to fold without the image cracking are key benefits of our posters.

- PEEL & STICK WALL MURALS:

Our wall murals are made of a self-adhesive thin polyester fabric material. They have the look and feel of a very thin canvas and do not require use of wallpaper paste or any extra glue for hanging. Our map murals can easily be removed, leaving no trace or sticky residue on 99% of any surface! They can be moved and re-applied over and over again, as the adhesive does not weaken or strengthen over time. Stick your map for a day – or stick it for a decade – still removes with no issues. Our material is green, nontoxic and safe. We protect them with a transparent laminate, which allows you to clean your map with a damp sponge.

Note: it is recommended to apply your wall mural on LOW or NO VOC paints.
