Researchers film glacier calving massive iceberg in Greenland

Iceberg tsunami warning Greenland fishing village on red alert as locals gripped by fear

It's hard to get a sense of scale from the video, but the researchers pointed out in a statement that this iceberg would cover most of Lower and Midtown Manhattan.

"And here we can see his wonderful significance", notes the study's lead author David Holland, Professor, Institute of mathematics NY.

Denise Holland, a research team field manager with NYU, caught the eye-opening occurrence on video, which condenses 30 minutes of activity down to about 90 seconds.

A massive iceberg that was part of a Greenland glacier has collapsed, leading to increased exposure of glacier ice to the ocean.

The video shows a wide and flat iceberg split and moves away from the glacier.

"Only great teams can be as fearless as we were and fight back from a goal down against teams like England ", Mandzukic said . Prime Minister Theresa May said: "Wasn't to be this time but it's been a great journey that's made the country proud".

Sea levels are rising and one of the culprits is the loss of ice from glaciers and ice sheets, victims of a warming planet. They occur naturally. However, the new event is significant because it is a troubling sign with regards to future sea level rise.

A team of scientists from New York University captured a video of a 4-mile iceberg breaking away from a glacier in eastern Greenland.

Rarely seen footage of a glacier losing a huge chunk due to rising seas has been released, putting issues of climate change in full view. It may also offer a chance to study iceberg calving. Meanwhile, smaller pinnacle icebergs, which are tall and thin, can be seen calving off and flipping over. "The better we understand what is happening, the more precisely we can predict and plan for climate change", explains an employee at NY University, Denise Holland.

David Holland, a professor at NYU's Courant Institute of Mathematics and NYU Abu Dhabi, who led the research team said: "Global sea-level rise is both undeniable and consequential".

"Knowing how and in what ways icebergs calve is important for simulations because they ultimately determine global sea-level rise", adds Denise Holland, the logistics coordinator for NYU's Environmental Fluid Dynamics Laboratory, who filmed the calving event.
