Amery Iceberg Breaks Off

image

A huge iceberg has broken off the Amery Ice Shelf in Antarctica. Dubbed D28, the iceberg is around 1,600 square kilometers—about the size of Greater London. Approximately 30 kilometers wide and 60 kilometers long, it’s estimated to weigh more than 300 billion metric tons.
Captured by the Copernicus Sentinel-1 mission, the animation shows before and after images of the berg breaking away. It’s estimated to have calved from the Amery Ice Shelf between 22 and 25 Sep. 22-25, 2019.
Scientists say that this is the biggest calving of the Amery Ice Shelf in 50 years. Satellites will continue to monitor and track the iceberg, as it poses a threat for ships in the vicinity.
