This Envisat image features Baffin Island, visible in the lower right hand corner, the northwestern tip of Greenland, seen in the top right hand corner, and the ice-connected Queen Elizabeth Islands, the northernmost cluster of islands in the Canadian Arctic Archipelago. The Queen Elizabeth Islands include Ellesmere (the vertical land mass to the west of the dark-blue Baffin Bay), Devon (the bean-shaped island directly beneath Ellesmere), Axel, Heiberg and the Parry (seen directly west of Devon) and Sverdrup island groups (partially visible directly southwest of Ellesmere).
