The team measured a four-mile area in middle Manhattan, NYC, to illustrate the monumental size of the iceberg.

While it's hard to get a sense of scale from the camera's wide-angle view of the separating iceberg, the berg is so big that it could partially cover the island of Manhattan, extending from the lower tip of New York City into Midtown, according to the statement. An illustrated overlay of the iceberg's dimensions is available here (Credit: Google Earth, Courtesy of Denise Holland):

"And here we can see his unbelievable significance", notes the study's lead author David Holland, Professor, Institute of mathematics NY. - "Catching as it unfolds, we can see its value". But even though the icebergs tossed into the sea here are contributing to sea level rise, scientists still don't know exactly how such break-ups work.

If the Lakers can somehow land Kawhi Leonard - this year or next - they'd have a 1-2 punch as good as any in the league. There's no denying that the three free agents and Caldwell-Pope all possess defensive intensity and toughness.

"Knowing how and in what ways icebergs calve is important for simulations because they ultimately determine global sea-level rise", Denise Holland, the logistics coordinator for NYU's Environmental Fluid Dynamics Laboratory and NYU Abu Dhabi's Center for Global Sea Level Change, said in a news release.

Denise Holland, a research team field manager with NYU, caught the eye-opening occurrence on video, which condenses 30 minutes of activity down to about 90 seconds. It's a tabular iceberg, long and flat; in the video, you can also see tall, thin pinnacle icebergs crack off and flip over. It may also offer a chance to study iceberg calving. However, this ice sheet is becoming small due to increased melting and warming temperatures in the region mean more loss of ice. Such events could help researchers understand how glaciers will respond to natural variability and human-induced changes. The grant is part of the newly announced $25-million International Thwaites Glacier Collaboration, headed by the U.K.'s Natural Environment Research Council and the National Science Foundation, which will deploy scientists to gather the data needed to understand whether the glacier's collapse could begin in the next few decades or next few centuries.
