The United States National Snow and Ice Data Center sets out that the block, which was released from the Antarctica in mid-2017, is totally fragmented and it is impossible to track it as it was until now.
Weeks ago, the European Space Agency warned about the danger posed by the giant iceberg A-68a, which traveled thousands of kilometers from the Larsen C ice shelf in the Antarctica.
Meanwhile, the AlertaGeo website explained that the animals’ normal feeding routes could be blocked, preventing them from feeding their breeding properly.
All bottom-dwelling creatures would be crushed by A68a upon reaching land, a disturbance that would take a long time to reverse.
From that iceberg getting stuck on those islands could be there for 10 years affecting the local ecosystem and economy.
The A68a, with a submerged depth of 200 meters, was approximately the size of the English county of Somerset, with an extension of 4,200 square kilometers, and weighs hundreds of billions of tons.
