Colossal Iceberg Breaking Off Within Days

Posted by feww on July 8, 2017

Larsen C Ice Shelf Close to Calving

The third-largest iceberg in recorded history is about to break off from Larsen C ice shelf in Antarctica within days, FIRE-EARTH Science Team believes.

  • Calving speed has dramatically increased over the last few weeks.
  • At this stage, the separation could occur instantaneously, if assisted by a sizeable earthquake or a local tsunami.
  • Latest satellite imagery shows a swarm of new cracks branching off the main rift.
  • In all likelihood, the resultant large iceberg would be accompanied by a cluster of mini icebergs.
  • The large iceberg will have a volume of about 1,150km³ and an area of about 5,500km², or about 10% of the Larsen C ice shelf.
