HOF, ICELAND - AUGUST 15: In this aerial view a river of meltwater winds down from receding Kviarjokull glacier on August 15, 2021 near Hof, Iceland. Since the 1990s, 90 percent of Iceland’s glaciers have been retreating and projections for the future show a continued and strong reduction in size of its three ice caps. Kviarjokull is one of dozens of glacier tongues that descend from Vatnajokull, Iceland’s biggest ice cap, along Iceland’s southeastern coast.   (Photo by Sean Gallup/Getty Images)
