“Mega iceberg” has melted: scientists are sounding the alarm

The huge iceberg A68a, which broke away from the Antarctic Peninsula in 2017, released 152 billion tons of water into the ocean.

About this according to Nature World News.

According to scientists, this happened as a result of the melting of the “mega iceberg”. Researchers believe that a huge melted block of ice could affect the ecosystem of South Georgia Island. The amount of water it has lost is enough to fill 60 million Olympic-size swimming pools.

A68a has melted in the Antarctic Weddell Sea. It broke off the Larsen-C Ice Shelf in northern Antarctica in July 2017. The iceberg, whose area was about 6,000 square kilometers, was considered the largest in the ocean.
