K.J.V. Steenstrup Glacier is one of the major glaciers in King Christian IX Land, by the eastern coast of Greenland, Sermersooq municipality. This ice formation includes two nearly parallel glaciers, the Northern K.J.V. Steenstrup Glacier (Danish: K.I.V. Steenstrups Nordre Bræ)[1] and the Southern K.J.V. Steenstrup Glacier (Danish: K.I.V. Steenstrups Søndre Bræ).[2] These glaciers were named after Danish geologist and explorer of Greenland K. J. V. Steenstrup (1842 - 1913).

Geography

The K.J.V. Steenstrup Glaciers originate in a mountainous glaciated area east of Schweizerland. They flow from the NW in a roughly southeastern direction.

The two glaciers have their terminus on the east coast of the Greenland ice sheet, in the Denmark Strait roughly 8 km west of Tasiilap Karra (Cape Gustav Holm).[3] The northern side of the terminus of the Northern K.J.V. Steenstrup Glacier is by the mouth of the Ikersuaq (Ikertivaq) fjord.[4] Their faces form impressive walls of ice between 60 and 90 m high.[5]
