Ice Bergs

On August 5, 2010, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration reported a huge iceberg had broken off from Greenland.

Luc Desjardins is the Senior Canadian Ice and Iceberg Forecaster.

He says since the iceberg gave way from the Petermann Glacier in north-western Greenland, it has broken off into four parts.

Desjardins says they track the icebergs through a beacon placed on the largest chunk.

The last satellite imagery shows that the ice bergs are located north of Baffin Island, Nunavut.

The largest piece is 90 square kilometers.
