Isbre jordingslinje

Isbreers jordingslinje er det punktet hvor utløpere av breen ikke lenger ligger på fjell, men begynner å flyte over i en åpen vannkilde. I sonen utenfor jordingslinjen balanseres den delen av isbreen som ligger over vann av oppdrift fra den delen av isbreen som er under vann. Her skjer det lett isbrekalving, noen ganger i form av digre isfjell.
