The colossal iceberg torn from the Larsen C Glacier in Antarctica on July 12, 2017 is in the process of colliding with the South with the Orgia.
For the past three years, satellite missions such as the Copernicus Sentinel-1 have been used to track grass as it has moved to the Southern Ocean. For the first two years, it remained close to its parent ice with disturbed sea ice. But now, as the map shows, the main body of the A-68, known as the A-68A, is rapidly moving toward the South Org. It is now about 350 km from the island.
Approximately the same size as the South Atlantic Island, it could cause real problems for the island’s wildlife: in the sea’s wildlife. Feeding penguins և seals need access to the sea so that the iceberg can easily block their feeding routes, and life on the seabed can be ruined if the crop is grounded. The fear is that if the berg anchors against the shores of the South Coast, it could stay there for up to 10 years. When A38 was established here in 2004, many dead penguin chicks were found along the shoreline.
The map includes historical traces of icebergs based on data from a number of satellites, including ESA’s ERS-1 և ERS-2 as part of the Antarctic Ice Sheet Database, տալիս showing that A-68A is buying this in a well-trodden way. I hope the currents will break the A-68A in the vicinity of the South orbit և north-west վեն will break.
