Latest Icebergs 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.
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.
Scientists have reported a giant iceberg over twice the size of Sydney Harbor is on a slow but steady collision course with Australia.
A huge iceberg was identified near an island between Antarctica and Australia, an usual display in northern waters, Australian scientists announced on Thursday.
An iceberg has been spotted from the New Zealand shore for the first time in 75 years, one of about 100 that have been drifting south of the country.
After five years of being the world's largest free-floating object, the B-15A iceberg has broken into smaller pieces off Antarctica's Cape Adare.
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.
The threat of sea access being blocked to US and New Zealand bases in Antarctica may have receded after the world's largest iceberg broke free from the McMurdo Sound sea bed last month, New Zealand Antarctic officials said.
Car demolition derbies last minutes, but when it comes to a giant iceberg near Antarctica it takes a bit longer.
NASA satellites have witnessed a 100-mile-long iceberg near McMurdo Research station move like a battering ram toward Drygalski Ice Tongue. "It's a clash of the titans, a radical and uncommon event," says Robert Bindshadler, a researcher at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center, and if the two giant slabs of ice collide, we could see one of the best demolition derbies on the planet.
