Iceberg bigger than New York City breaks off ice shelf in Antarctica

Iceberg bigger than New York City breaks off ice shelf in Antarctica

March 3, 2021

An iceberg measuring 492 feet thick and 490 square miles and bigger than the size of New York City broke off an ice-shelf in Antarctica on Friday.

 

Ice-calving or iceberg calving is the process by which ice blocks break away from an ice shelf or the edge of a glacier. It is the sudden release and breaking away of a mass of ice.

"The iceberg was formed when the crack widened several hundred meters in a few hours on the morning of 26th Feb, releasing it from the rest of floating ice shelf," BAS noted in a press release.

 
A short video showing the calving process and the huge crack on the ice-shelf was shared on Twitter by BAS.
