Notes:
  • Recently, a new island has been discovered off the coast of Greenland. 
  • The newly discovered island measures 60×30 metres. It is three metres above sea level and has now become the new northernmost piece of land on Earth. Before this, Oodaaq was marked as the Earth’s northernmost terrain.
