Following a collision a week earlier Australian and French scientists tells us another block of ice from a glacier has hit the Antarctica, drifting at about 63 miles.
Glaciologist Neil Young said the long iceberg is the size of Luxembourg that collided with the floating Mertz Glacier and shaved off a new iceberg. The new iceberg is 98 miles long and 24 miles wide holding the equivalent of a 5th of the worlds annual water usage.
the iceberg that hit the first time was called 888 and for 18 years it had been shifting along the Mertz before the second one came.
Legresy, LEGOS researcher said, "the dislodging occurred because of the iceberg's latest location and the warm water during Antarctica's summer."
Due to ocean currents some experts are concerned about the displacement of the ice next to the glacier. The sinking water is what spills into the ocean basins and feeds global ocean currents with oxygen.
"With part of the glacier gone, the area could fill with sea ice, which could also disrupt the sinking ability of dense and cold water." said climate expert Steve Rintoul.
"Specific parts of the world's ocean could lose oxygen and most of the people could die." said chemical oceanographer Mario Hoppemg.
According to some experts they don't see Mario's theory happening but they do ecpect the glaciers to head west of the Antartica coastlines.
