Greenland - is an island. The most enormous of all, existing in a world of islands. It is located in one part of the Arctic Ocean, the other - in the Atlantic. East coast of Greenland for almost a year, surrounded by floating ice, which brings here from the central Arctic Ocean during the cold. Not a bit of better things on the northern coast of the island - it is precipitated by ice all year round. On the part of the Southwest situation less severe - the banks are washed by the warm West Greenland Current, and ice, preventing the approach of ships to these shores, is almost there.
