NOVAYA ZEMLYA, RUSSIA-AUGUST 23, 2012-Novaya Zemlya is an archipelago in the Arctic Ocean located north of Russia. Novaya Zemlya was known for being a sensitive military area during the Cold War as the most powerful nuclear devise ever was detonated here. It was a 50 megaton Soviet hydrogen bomb (AN602), nicknamed the “Emperor Bomb”. Now glaciers in the area are being studied because the duration of open water has increased annually due to the decrease in sea ice. On this image you can see the Moshniy Glacier as large chunks of ice and debris appear to have recently calved off. (Photo DigitalGlobe via Getty Images)
