Researchers develop a mathematical method of modeling tabular icebergs, like the one that broke away from an Antarctic ice shelf earlier this year.
Six Points of Perspective on Larsen C’s Huge New Iceberg
A Delaware-sized slab of ice just broke off Antarctica. Now what?
New Technique Reveals Iceberg Calving Process
Researchers used unmanned aerial vehicle data to model the growth of a fracture that broke a 1-kilometer-long iceberg off a Greenland glacier.
Iceberg Surge During Last Deglaciation May Have Had Two Pulses
Seafloor sediment cores provide new clues that could help clarify the influence of ice sheet collapse on a period of ocean cooling marked by slowed deepwater circulation.
Seismic Clues Reveal the Mechanisms Behind Iceberg Calving
Scientists combine models and video footage of iceberg calving to analyze the potential of seismology to unravel physical processes behind the breakup of ice sheets.
Icebergs Fertilize Southern Ocean, Sequester Carbon
Huge, drifting ice rafts (the white spot on the satellite image below ) shed minerals as they melt, painting trails of nutrients, teeming phytoplankton, and chlorophyll across hundreds of kilometers of ocean.
