Alanngorsuup Sermia (old spelling: Alángorsûp Sermia) is a tidewater glacier in the Qaasuitsup municipality on the northwestern shore of Greenland. It drains the Greenland ice sheet northwestwards into Tasiusaq Bay.[1] The glacier front is located to the south of the Nunatarsuaq nunatak, and to the north of the Qassersuaq Peninsula.[1] Nunatakassaup Sermia, a sibling glacier to the north, drains the icesheet into the same point at the inner end of Tasiusaq Bay.
