Due to the effects of global warming and changing climate, an iceberg as big as the city of London has broken off from the ice shelf in Antarctica.
According to the British Antarctic Survey, since 2019, cracks had started to appear in the Burnt Ice Shell. Which is now completely separated from the ice layer. The incident took place on January 22 around 7:00 a.m.
Experts are monitoring the great layer of ice with an area of 1500 km to see if there is any more cracks from this event. The model of the Burnt Ice Shelf is very complex. It is very difficult to detect any major changes in advance.
Experts have warned that this phenomenon is due to a changing climate and global warming, and if the great ice sheets continue to break up, sea levels will rise and storms will come.
