Giant iceberg with 260 square kilometers away from Greenland’s glaciers, the U.S. universities researchers said. Chunks of ice break away from the Petermann Glacier in Greenland’s northwest coast. This is the largest Arctic ice shelf that broke out since 1962, said Professor Andreas Muenchow of the University of Delaware. Ice possible freeze in winter or split between Greenland and Canada.
If the chunk of ice moving south may interfere with the cruise, said Prof. Muenchow. Crack in the Petermann Glacier had seen years ago and is expected chunk of ice will soon break away. This glacier was a thousand miles south of the North Pole. [link to www.starcitynews.com]
