Iceberg B-15A, in Antarcticas McMurdo Sound, is as large as Long Island, NY (3,000 square kilometers or 1,200 square miles) and is the largest fragment of a much larger iceberg that broke away from the Ross Ice Shelf in March 2000. Iceberg B-15A has trapped sea ice in McMurdo Sound, and the ice build-up presents significant problems for Antarctic penguins, which must now swim great distances to reach ... Full description.

This slide show explains that by understanding past climate variability, scientists hope to understand the course of future changes in the earth's climate system. This slide set outlines past climate variability by reconstructing abrupt climate changes in the Late Pleistocene, specifically sudden cold events known as Heinrich Events, which have occurred six times in the past 75,000 years involving ...

This two-hour module examines sea ice, icebergs, and the products and services of the National Ice Center and the North American Ice Service. Topics include climatology and current trends in sea ice extent and thickness; the development, classification, and drift of sea ice and icebergs; fractures, leads and polynyas; and the satellite detection of sea ice using visible, infrared, and microwave sensors. ...

This lithograph shows the break-off of a large iceberg from the Pine Island Glacier in West Antarctica. This event occurred between November 4th and 12th, 2001, and provides powerful evidence of rapid changes underway in this area of Antarctica. The three images presented were acquired by the vertical-viewing (nadir) camera of the Multi-angle Imaging SpectroRadiometer (MISR) instrument aboard NASA's ... Full description.

In this exercise, students observe simulations of melting sea ice and a melting continental ice sheet in order to investigate the relationship between the melting of the ice and the water level in the tank. The water tanks simulate the world oceans. In the first example, the ice is floating in water. This would be an example of icebergs or Arctic ice floating on the ocean. In the second example the ...

Project Iceberg is the education and outreach site for ANDRILL (ANtarctic geologic DRILLing), a research project to drill and recover cores of sedimentary rock from the sea floor beneath the McMurdo Ice Shelf in order to construct a history of paleoenvironmental changes that will guide understanding of the scope, speed, and frequency of glacial and interglacial changes in Antarctica. The site features ... Full description.

This article provides an eyewitness account by a photographer who traveled with Robert Falcon Scott on his last, ill-fated Antarctic expedition. The excerpt includes biographic information about Herbert G. Ponting, a travel writer and, arguably, the finest photographer to have worked in Antarctica, his account of the sights and sounds of Antarctica's shoreline, including the icebergs and whales he ...

Recent satellite images have revealed two new icebergs floating off the Antarctic coast. The icy behemoths are fragments of the Ninnis Glacier. This NASA fact sheet uses text and remotely sensed imagery to describe the events of January 2000, in which a large tongue of the Ninnis Galcier broke off and split into two gigantic icebergs. The breakup of the Ninnis Glacier Tongue has important implications ... Full description.
