A river in Greenland augmented by ice melt: The river that runs through Kanger, called Akuliarusiarsuup Kuua in Greenlandic, but also known as Watson River. This river is very milky looking because it is formed by melt-water from the ice sheet. The grey river banks are not ice, but rocks now exposed
