Watch A 6-Kilometre-Wide Iceberg Break From Greenland Glacier

A 6.4-kilometre-wide iceberg broke off the Helheim Glacier in Greenland, tumbling into the fjord below. The 35-minute calving was captured in this time-lapse video. The separated section is about half the size of Manhattan. As Earth warms, ice loss from glaciers like this is accelerating, contributing to global sea-level rise.
