The iceberg is not dangerous for ships. While he swims in the ocean like an ice cube in a glass
Every Antarctic spring and summer NASA sends to the continent a special aircraft to bird’s eye to monitor how global warming changes the landscape.
In November 2017, reconnaissance aircraft, NASA P-3 Orion flew out of Ushuaia, Argentina, to survey the ice shelf Larsen C and breakaway from a giant iceberg, reports Mashable.
A huge block of ice, named A-68, went into free-swimming in early July. Since the giant is slightly “thinner”, losing a few more or less large pieces, but is still monstrous.
NASA posted pictures of the iceberg on their pages in social networks. Mankind first gained the ability to see an object so close — previously it was removed only from the satellite with the help of special devices.
The iceberg is not dangerous for ships. While he swims in the ocean like an ice cube in the glass. However, it is likely that, breaking the ice shelf Larsen C, the iceberg will accelerate the demise of the ice sheet. This, in turn, threatens a significant rise in sea level.
