The ocean north of Antarctica has turned into an "alphabet soup" of broken icebergs, according to a new blog post on NASA's Earth
Observatory website.
In a satellite photo snapped on Feb.
11, 2021, the jagged outlines of 11 fractured icebergs swirl around a remote, penguin-filled island called
South Georgia, located about 940 miles (1,500 kilometers) northeast of the Antarctic Peninsula.
Each frozen chunk is a piece of the once-mighty iceberg A-68a, which held the title of world's largest iceberg for more than three years before
Shattering into a dozen pieces a few weeks ago. Now, each broken bit of the puzzle has its own name, beginning with A-68b, and ending with
A-68M. (Several of the icebergs are not visible in this photo.)
