A mammoth iceberg that struck a glacier off Antarctica, dislodged a newer chunk of ice that could affect ocean currents and also lower the levels of oxygen in the world's oceans, according to Australian and French scientists. The two icebergs are drifting together about 62 to 93 miles off Antarctica after the Feb 12-13 collision, said Neal Young, a glaciologist for the Australian Antarctic Division. The first iceberg, measuring 60 miles long, collided with the Mertz Glacier Tongue and...

The giant iceberg, known as B17B, is gradually breaking up into smaller pieces as it drifts northeast from Antarctica towards Australia. The 140 square kilometer block of ice has now reduced its size to 115 square kilometers, making the iceberg approximately 18 kilometers long by 8 kilometers wide. Australian Antarctic Division glaciologist, Dr Neal Young, has been tracking the iceberg's progress using satellite images from NASA and the European Space Agency since it was first seen about...

Scientists have reported a giant iceberg over twice the size of Sydney Harbor is on a slow but steady collision course with Australia, according to the Telegraph UK. Researchers at the Australian Antarctic Division (ADD) spotted the 12 mile-long and 5-mile wide chunk of ice floating close to the mainland. The iceberg, known as B17B, is currently drifting 1,000 miles from Australia's west coast and is gradually moving north with the ocean current and prevailing wind. Should the...

Over one hundred Antarctic icebergs are moving towards New Zealand in an extraordinary happening that has raised a shipping warning, officials announced Monday. An Australian Antarctic Division glaciologist stated that the bergs, pinpointed by satellites, have floated past the Auckland Islands, and are 280 miles northeast of the Island. Scientist Neal Young noted that the icebergs, including some that are 650 feet in width, were in a large group, which implies that there could be more. The...
