Iceberg larger than London breaks off Brunt
An iceberg around the size of Greater London broke off Antarctica’s Brunt Ice Shelf due to a natural process called ‘calving’. The iceberg, measuring 1550 sq km, detached from the 150 m-thick ice shelf a decade after scientists first spotted massive cracks in the shelf.

Great news, not long ago (geologically) there were still forrests on the south pole with lots of animals.
I think Ocean is the way.
and so begins the end……..
So what is the significance of this event? Is this the normal process where icebergs breakaway, or is it unusual?
i just can't believe 'glaciologist' is a real title
O período da glaciação de uma calote de gelo, sendo esta massa de gelo alimentada …unida agora está partida, como se um gelado se parta e derreta quando está fora do frigorífico mudando de um estado para outro…e que fez mudar os cientistas também!! Será que terão de mudar novamente?!! Os satélites foram os principais informadores dos cientistas?! Descolará e por onde vai esta massa de gelo gigante errante?!! Que desolador … e o que acontecerá as diversas formas de vida, os organismos que vivem das baixíssima temperaturas?! As imagens do Sentinela são reveladores da pressão!!
Thank you for sharing the news
I can remember a couple of other news items about ice breaking off of Antarctica, with all this ice breaking off someone should really be trying to keep track of things, see if there is a pattern.
Damn I think this is the squirrel's doing
Danger sign for World
It's scary 😲 How Big it is!!
