Giant iceberg drifts into south polar seas
Any stats or estimates on the limetime in the water of these big dog ice cubes? Are we talking months, years... what?
An iceberg more than twice the size of the ACT has ventured into the south polar seas, after wrenching itself free of the Antarctic ice shelf.
David Vaughan - of the British Antarctic Survey - says at 200 kilometres long, 30 kilometres wide and about 200 metres thick, C-19 is one of the biggest icebergs seen in recent years. He says the iceberg is still in the Ross Sea, about 300 kilometres from the ice-front from which it has broken off. Mr Vaughan says it will not start melting until it leaves the cold polar waters. C-19's formation on the Ross Ice Shelf was first spotted in May by the US National Ice Centre. A European environment satellite then monitored its gradual break-out into the open sea.
The nearest land to C-19 is New Zealand, several thousand thousand kilometres away
Need a few cubes for that drink Ice Wolf?
