World's Largest Iceberg Breaks Off In Antarctica

The massive chunk of ice floating in the Weddell Sea was first spotted on May 13 2021, measuring approximately 170 km long and 25 km wide, it boasts a surface area of 4,300 sq km and is currently the world's largest iceberg.

Massive iceberg breaks off from Antarctica

A giant iceberg, larger than the size of most European cities, has broken away from Antarctica. Scientists had been expecting a huge chunk of ice to break away for almost a decade after the first "vast cracks" had formed.

Iceberg due to collide with island splits in 2

Antarctic iceberg A-68A has drifted menacingly close to a remote island in the southern Atlantic Ocean. The giant iceberg could strike land this month. It has now split into 2 pieces.

Large Antarctic Ice Shelf is about to break apart

The iceberg, measuring over 1,500 square kilometers is expected to break away from the Brunt Ice Shelf within the next few months. The rifting started several years ago and is now approaching its final phase.

Antarctica is melting from below and that′s bad news

So far, the Antarctic was seen as relatively stable. But a new study suggests that climate change is affecting the polar region on a much larger scale than previously believed.

Yet Another Giant Iceberg Has Broken Free From Antarctica

Satellite images taken this past weekend show a new 100-square-mile iceberg emerging from Antarctica’s Pine Island Glacier. It’s a troubling sign with regards to future sea level rise.

The Larsen C Iceberg Is Already Cracking Up

The trillion-ton iceberg that broke off Antarctica last week will not go quietly into the night. New satellite imagery reveals that the iceberg, dubbed A68, is already cracking up.

NASA Images Show Gradual Separation of Massive New Antarctic Iceberg

This is the farthest back that the ice front has been in recorded history, and the scientists are going to be watching very carefully for signs that the rest of the shelf is becoming unstable.

Collapse of Enormous Antarctic Ice Shelf Imminent

There’s now very little to prevent a complete collapse—an event that will produce one of the largest icebergs in recorded history.

A Second Giant Crack Has Appeared on Antarctica’s Larsen C Ice Shelf

A 80-mile-long crack along Antarctica’s Larsen C Ice Shelf has remained stable since February, but scientists have now detected a new branch, one that’s extending about six miles from the main rift.

Drone footage shows huge Antarctic ice crack

Drone footage shows an Antarctic ice crack which opened late last year. The British Antarctic Survey is to pull all staff out of its space-age Halley base in March because of the crack.
