Due to global warming, every year billions of tons the glacier melts. With rising temperatures, huge chunks of ice in the glaciers break off and mix into the ocean.
The Brunt Ice Shelf Glacier on the Antarctic coast recently collapsed from a stretch nearly twice the size of Yalova. Total 256 billion tons the glacier broke off from its main part.
Breaking moments of the glacier with an area of 1,550 kilometers:
According to the British Antarctic Survey statement, the glacier had a thickness of 150 meters. If the area of the broken piece is 1,550 kilometerssquare used to be. The rupture of the glacier occurred on January 22 between 22:00 and 23:00 CEST.
So why did it break?
The outbreaks in Brunt Ice Shelf have actually been going on for a long time. The area of the last fracture Gorge-1has now become a breaking point and has been shrinking for over a decade. The latest rupture occurred in the region in recent years. second largest outbreak was recorded as.
