Massive Iceberg the Size of London Breaks Off Antarctica’s Larsen C Ice Shelf

One of the world’s largest icebergs ever recorded has sheared off from the Larsen C ice shelf on the Antarctic peninsula.
The rift, or crack, in the ice shelf – which are floating sheets of ice connected to land — began in 2010 and has grown steadily since then.
Now, the iceberg, which is roughly the size of Delaware, will gracefully drift away from the ice shelf over the next few weeks.
As for what happens next, the berg could remain in the region, where the ocean is quite cold, and stick around for years, perhaps even decades. Or it may move north where it would melt more quickly.
