The iceberg was first reported by the Canadian Ice Service. While large, the iceberg is only half the size of an ice island that broke off the same glacier in 2010. Nevertheless, the fracture is significant according to Andreas Muenchow, associate professor of physical ocean science and engineering at the the University of Delaware.
