PARTING SHOT

The kingdom of Denmark is set to be accidentally expanded, thanks to the discovery of what is believed to be the world’s northernmost landmass — a yet-to-be-named island north of Greenland that could soon be swallowed up by seawaters.

Oodaaq is some 700 kilometres (435 miles) south of the North Pole, while the new island is 780 metres (2,560 feet) north of Oodaaq, according to Morten Rasch, who led the expedition as the head of Copenhagen University’s department of geosciences and natural resource management.
