A huge iceberg broke off from the Brunt Ice Shelf in Antarctica almost 10 years after scientists discovered the first cracks.

Aerial video released by the British Antarctic Survey (BAS) on Friday showed the chasm called the North Rift break off the Brunt Ice Shelf in the Weddell Sea section of Antarctica.


The 1,270 sq. kilometre iceberg is the third major chasm to break across the 150-metre thick floating ice shelf in the last decade.

“Our teams at BAS have been prepared for the calving of an iceberg from Brunt Ice Shelf for years,” Jane Francis, the director of the BAS, said in a press release. “Over (the) coming weeks or months, the iceberg may move away; or it could run aground and remain close to Brunt Ice Shelf.”
