Latest Iceberg Stories
An iceberg previously said to be more than eight times the size of Manhattan could soon disrupt shipping lanes as it moves well outside of Pine Island Bay in Antarctica.
One hundred and two years ago, the Titanic set off on its fateful maiden voyage from the United Kingdom. Coinciding with that anniversary is a new report that has determined the conditions surrounding the iceberg that would eventually take 1,517 lives.
Researchers from the University of Sheffield and Southampton were awarded an emergency grant to study how an iceberg that recently separated from an Antarctic glacier could disrupt shipping lanes.
Bowhead and minke whale sightings, extensive ice floe measurements and the successful retrieval of important moored instruments are among the successes of a multinational team of ice engineering researchers and marine biologists during their first week off the coast of northeastern Greenland on the Swedish icebreaker Oden.
Large stretches of ice on the coasts of Antarctica and Greenland are at risk of rapidly cracking apart and falling into the ocean in events over the coming decades that could aggravate sea level rise.
One of the Earth's most watched glaciers, Pine Island Glacier (PIG), has released a massive iceberg about eight times the size of Manhattan Island, according to images released by the German Space Agency (DLR).
The majority of Antarctica’s ice loss is caused by warm ocean waters eating away at the undersides of ice shelves, not the sudden release and breaking away of ice masses from glaciers.
A new study found that fast-flowing and narrow glaciers could trigger massive changes in the Antarctic ice sheet, inevitably adding sea-level rise and ice-sheet decay.
This weekend marks a century since the RMS Titanic struck an iceberg while crossing the North Atlantic, taking 1,500 lives down to the bottom of the sea with it.
Even centuries after the “unsinkable” ship fell to the bottom of the ocean, scientists, researchers, and historians continue to study what caused the ship’s demise.
