Posted Thu Nov 14 2013: from The Independent:
Giant Antarctic iceberg 'could pose hazard to shipping lanes', scientists warn
A giant Antarctic iceberg has broken free of the continent and could be about to drift into busy international shipping lanes, a team of British scientists has warned ... 700 square kilometres (270 square miles) of ice - around eight times the size of Manhattan or the equivalent of Singapore.... Prof Bigg said the crack hadn't been enough in itself to allow the berg to break away over winter because it had stayed "iced-in". "But in the last couple of days, it has begun to break away and now a kilometre or two of clear water has developed between it and the glacier," he told BBC News.... "... they can either go eastwards along the coast or they can... circle out into the main part of the Southern Ocean."... This would take it into the path of one of the world's busiest international shipping lanes, and trigger hazard warnings via a number of observation agencies.
