14.1 Why doesn't Greenland glacier quite make it to the sea on most of its coast?
It has to do with the sea tempearature levels surrounding Greenland. They are much warmer than the glacier itself, which can actually cause some melting of the glacier, but is also why it doesn't quite meet the sea.
14.2 In what part of the glacier did the ice flow fastest between 1874 and 1882?
It appears it flowed fastest around the edges.
14.3 What was the fastest rate of flow expressed in meters per year?
