Researchers film glacier calving massive iceberg in Greenland

Dramatic Video Captures Moment Towering Iceberg Splits from Greenland Glacier

Researchers also managed to capture on camera a video that shows the noticeable violence and speed of the ice breaking event that is now ongoing.

Sea levels are rising and one of the culprits is the loss of ice from glaciers and ice sheets, victims of a warming planet.

"Global sea-level rise is both undeniable and consequential", says David Holland, the leader of the research team and a professor at New York University's Courant Institute of Mathematics.

Brexit has now morphed into an unprecedented tsunami threatening to destroy every British interest in its path. Does she rely on Labour votes to achieve Brexit or does she change her mind and go back to Lancaster House.

The calving event was filmed on June 22 at 11.30pm local time.

The phenomenon is known as calving, the breaking off of large blocks of ice from a glacier. - "Catching as it unfolds, we can see its value".

The birth of an iceberg was recorded on video by a team of researchers in Eastern Greenland, according to the New Atlas.

Pfizer says it will "defer" drug price hike after Trump tweet
Mid-year drug price increases are a common industry practice that has not abated, despite the Trump administration's efforts. Those include Viagra, cholesterol drug Lipitor and arthritis treatment Xeljanz, according to Wells Fargo.

Greenland's glaciers are more accessible, so Holland and his colleagues have spent a decade collecting data and observing glacier behavior in Greenland - and this time they just happened to be perfectly positioned to witness an iceberg splitting away, research team member Denise Holland, the logistics coordinator for NYU's Environmental Fluid Dynamics Laboratory and NYU Abu Dhabi's Center for Global Sea Level Change, told Live Science.

News of rising sea levels and temperatures have become so common in headlines and reports, it is possible that the general public is becoming desensitised to it all. The contribution of Antarctica to sea-level rise remains small: only 7.6 mm in the period from 1992 to 2017. Hopefully, it will help researchers further understand the causes of sea-level rise around the world.

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

"Understanding how icebergs are melting, is important to model predictions, because in the end, they determine a global sea-level rise". The calving event, captured in stunning footage by a team of researchers on site, spurred several other tall icebergs to separate as well, with some even flipping over entirely.
