Icebergs: the Hidden Face of Ice Giants

01.12.2017, by
As a gigantic 5000 square kilometer iceberg threatens to break away from the Antarctic peninsula, CNRS news takes a closer look at these mountains of ice adrift in the sea. Where do they come from, why do they float and what are they made of?

We extend our gratitude to Jean Tournadre, Ifremer researcher at the Laboratoire d’océanographie physique et spatiale (CNRS unit/Ifremer/IRD/University of West Brittany), for his expertise and helpful advice.
