“What makes this one a bit unusual is that it looks almost like a square.”
This is not the first time the Larsen C ice shelf has shed a large iceberg.
Last summer an iceberg known as A-68 detached itself and had a surface area of over 2,000 miles.
The discovery was made as part of Operation IceBridge, the largest ever aerial survey of the planet’s ice around Greenland and in Antartica.
The survey is building a three-dimensional map of the ice at both poles.
