Antarctic iceberg double the size of Mumbai grazes dangerously against ice sheet; see viral image here
The images of the collision were captured by the European Space Agency (ESA’s) Sentinel-1 pair of satellites.
Satellite data is useful to provide global observations of key components of the climate system and biosphere that are essential for our understanding of how the planet is changing.
Called A-76 and roughly the shape of Manhattan but more than 70 times bigger, the iceberg was picked up on satellite images and is currently the "largest berg in the world"
New expedition will look at the impact of a giant iceberg on marine, wildlife of Antarctica's island
The iceberg — named A-68a — is travelling at varying speeds depending on local conditions, but at its fastest was travelling about 20 kilometres a day.
Climate change causes Canada's last remaining 4,000-year-old Milne Ice Shelf to break apart into iceberg islands
Temperatures from May to early August in the region have been five degrees Celsius warmer than the 1980 to 2010 average.
NASA shared an image of a tabular iceberg separated off the Larsen C ice shelf at 90-degree angles.
The largest iceberg ever recorded, that broke away from Antarctica's Ross Ice Shelf 18 years ago, could be nearing the end of its voyage, according to NASA
If the Larsen C ice shelf breaks free, it'll be the size of four Londons or more than seven New York City.
A big crack in a Antarctica ice shelf has grown by 17 kms in a week and is only 13 kms from the ice front, indicating that a huge iceberg is probably very close
There were a greater number of icebergs than normal that year, and weather conditions had driven them further south and earlier in the year than usual, the researchers said.
Poor quality of rivets holding the Titanic's hull together may have come loose after colliding with an iceberg, sinking the ship a century ago, a study says.
