ONE TRILLION TONS: THE ICEBERG, ANTARCTICA AND CLIMATE CHANGE



Date : 31-07-2017

The second week of July 2017 saw an event that can only be described as a ‘mammoth moment’ taking place, as a trillion ton iceberg broke off from western Antarctica. The size of the iceberg has been pegged at more than three times the size of the greater London area. Scientists who had been monitoring the progress of a crack nearly 100 miles long in an ice shelf in western Antarctica had been anticipating the break and the iceberg was finally reported to have broken off on July 12, 2017.
