An iceberg expected to be one of the 10 largest ever recorded is ready to break away from Antarctica, scientists say. A long-running rift in the Larsen C ice shelf grew suddenly in December and now just 20km of ice is keeping the 5,000 sq km piece from floating away.
Larsen C is the most northern major ice shelf in Antarctica.
Researchers based in Swansea say the loss of a piece a quarter of the size of Wales will leave the whole shelf vulnerable to future break-up.

A huge iceberg is a good thing. It can be easily seen and tracked. The Titanic would never had hit a Delaware sized iceberg. This also enables trans-oceanic migration of microscopic organisms. In Spock's words: "Fascnating".

The British expedition 'tell' us that the rift has increased by 18km, but there is sod all video of it. Have they ever heard of a drone? I will chip in the 50 quid to buy a drone if they are short.

I hope they get some decent video of the calving event. This will be pretty spectacular, especially as Larsen B break up was totally missed apart from a few satellite still photos.

Global climate change has to be the cause of this and it aggravates me that researchers say "they do not have evidence" that can prove this Antarctic iceberg is breaking away as a result of our human consumption and ignorance leading to an accelerating greenhouse effect. We just recently passed 400ppm of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere and show no signs of slowing down...

Lmao we still have a net gain of ice in the Antarctic despite what we loose from melt and break offs. So we are still gaining ice in the Antarctic. It's a cycle people the ice breaks off and more ice forms. Nothing new.
