Greenland is an autonomous region of the European country of Denmark, and consists of a vast island stretching from the North Atlantic Ocean to the Arctic Ocean along the northeast coast of North America. It lies immediately east of northern Canada.

It is the largest island in the world, aside from the continent of Australia. Its major feature is the miles-thick icecap that occupies the majority of the island, which is the second largest icecap (after Antarctica) on Earth. The north-south length of Greenland is about 1800 miles (2900 km), the east-west dimension ranging from 400 to 800 miles (640 to 1280 km).
