Rink Glacier is a large glacier located on the west coast of Greenland. It drains an area of 30,182 sq km (11,653 sq mi) of the Greenland ice sheet with a flux (quantity of ice moved from the land to the sea) of 12.1 cu km (2.9 cu mi) per year, as measured for 1996. As reported by Anker Weidick and Ole Bennike in 2007, it is ranked second or third in iceberg production in western Greenland. It is also the swiftest moving and highest surface ice in the World. The glacier is named in honor of Hinrich Johannes Rink, Danish geologist and Greenlandic researcher.
