Documentation: An iceberg the size of London broke off in Antarctica - voila! news


The size of the giant glacier is estimated at 1,550 square kilometers - and 150 meters thick. The body for Antarctic research in the UK BAS stated that the movement of the glacier was expected, and that even a decade ago huge cracks were discovered in the glacier. "It has nothing to do with climate change, it is a natural process," the company clarified

A huge glacier estimated to be the size of London split today (Tuesday) in Antarctica, about a decade after significant cracks were discovered in it.

It covered about 1,550 square kilometers and was about 150 meters thick.

"Our research teams were expecting this event, the first cracks were identified a decade ago," said the British Antarctic Survey BAS.

They also added that the split was not affected by climate change, and that it is part of a natural movement that occurs in nature.

Last July, huge blocks of ice broke off in the Italian Alps, and parts of the glaciers collapsed.

As a result, several travelers were killed and injured.

This, following record temperatures and a heavy heat wave that was in the country.

The avalanche occurred on Mount Marmolada, the highest mountain in the Dolomites - a mountain range that is part of the Italian Alps.

Its height is more than 3,300 meters.

The ice collapsed on the route used by hikers and climbers to reach the summit.
