Did you know how big the biggest iceberg ever recorded to have broken free from the Ross ice shelf was?
The Ross ice shelf is the largest ice shelf in Antarctica which is roughly the size of France. The chunk of ice that broke free was 183 miles long and 23 miles wide with a surface area of 4,250 square miles above water and 10 times bigger below water. Can’t image it? Picture the state of Connecticut if it was solid as ice. That’s about the same size!
