Iceberg Breaks off Pine Island Glacier in Antarctica

Today a large iceberg broke away from the Pine Island Glacier (part of
the West Antarctic Ice Sheet) in Antarctica. For those who worry about
rising sea level, this was part of ice already floating in water, thus
it has already displaced the amount it affects in sea level. Read this
about this iceberg and more about ice in Antarctica, especially
this glacier.
