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