Researchers film glacier calving massive iceberg in Greenland

Google Earth  Denise Holland

The chunk of ice that broke away from Greenland's Helheim Glacier during this particular calving event was huge, measuring 6 kilometers (4 miles) in length.

A 2017 estimate suggested that a collapse of the entire the Western Antarctic Ice Sheet would result in a 10-foot-rise in sea level.

According to the latest predictions, if the Western Antarctic Ice Sheet collapsed it could cause global sea levels to rise by ten feet, overwhelming coastal cities around the world like NY and Abu Dhabi.

The event plays out over 30 minutes, though the video has been condensed to around 90 seconds and shows a front-on angle of the glacier's edge, followed by a perspective further down the fjord.

Numerous protesters and supporters of Hojabri are Iranian women, who've also been posting videos of themselves dancing in public. She was seen apparently confessing to her "crimes" on state television alongside the others that were arrested.

Also, these effects include a side effect that only supports the continuous melting of more glaciers, the warming water effect that generates more and more icebergs that eventually melt away in the ocean, making sea levels rise nonstop. "By capturing how it unfolds, we can see, first-hand, its breath-taking significance". The video shows the HELHEIM glacier.

It's hard to get a sense of scale from the video, but the researchers pointed out in a statement that this iceberg would cover most of Lower and Midtown Manhattan.

"Global sea-level rise is both undeniable and consequential". Hopefully, it will help researchers further understand the causes of sea-level rise around the world. "Rising sea levels are a globally important issue which can not be tackled by one country alone", says U.K. Science Minister, Sam Gyimah.

Earth's biggest glaciers are in frozen Antarctica, and their breakup would be catastrophic for sea level rise; the loss of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet would release enough water to raise global sea levels by almost 10 feet (3 meters). "The better we understand what's going on means we can create more accurate simulations to help predict and plan for climate change". As it does so, thin and tall icebergs-also known as pinnacle bergs-calve off and flip over.
