The newly created iceberg was massive, about the size of the US state of Delaware, but it did not contribute to rising sea levels, as it was already floating on the ocean’s surface before it became detached from the larger body of ice. But many of the glaciers on the continent are melting, as well, and because they’re on land, the runoff from that melting ice does cause Earth’s sea levels to rise — and we now have one of the most robust estimates ever of just how much that melting glacial ice in the Antarctic is contributing to sea level rise.
