Jakobshavn Glacier: In the summer, increased temperatures cause melt ice to form lakes and rivers on the surface of the glacier. The water flows into deep vertical shafts in the ice called moulins.

Water at the base of the glacier lubricates its motion and enhances its speed. It is believed that eventually the water drains into the the Arctic Sea.
