Latest Ice calving Stories
Breathtaking images taken from outer-space by NASA's Operation IceBridge -- the largest airborne survey of Earth's polar ice ever flown -- reveal a 19-mile long, 195 ft.-deep crack across a floating ice shelf in Antarctica that could produce the world’s largest iceberg.
After discovering an emerging crack that cuts across a floating ice shelf, NASA's Operation IceBridge has flown a follow-up mission and made the first-ever detailed airborne measurements of a major iceberg calving in progress.
A NASA scientist and her colleagues were able to observe for the first time the power of an earthquake and tsunami to break off large icebergs a hemisphere away.
New detailed observations of what happens when glaciers float on ocean surface.
Close to 50 years of data show the Devon Island ice cap, one of the largest ice masses in the Canadian High Arctic, is thinning and shrinking.
Scientists have developed computer models that are useful in predicting how fast icebergs break off Antarctica and Greenland.
With digital imaging techniques, scientists find new data in old aerial photographs
Findings show that ice fracturing occurs in episodes and may be tied to changes evolving over seasons.
The mammoth B-15A iceberg appears poised to strike another floating Antarctic ice feature, a month on from a passing blow that broke off the end of the Drygalski ice tongue. As this Envisat image reveals, this time its target is the ice tongue of the Aviator Glacier.
