    New iceberg calved into Antarctica's Weddel Sea

    New icebergs are formed from time to time. The last major chunk to come off the Brunt was in 1971

    A 1,550 km2 iceberg broke off from Antarctica's Brunt Ice Shelf, British scientists reported Monday. “The 1,550-square-kilometer block of ice broke off the ice shelf between 7 pm and 8 pm Sunday after a strong tide widened an existing crack in the ice shelf,” the British Antarctic Survey (BAS) explained.
