New video footage of the massive A81 iceberg that broke away from the Brunt Ice Shelf in Antarctica in January has been released. While before and after satellite images were released of the iceberg when it broke away, the new footage shows the massive scale of the iceberg for the first time.
Recorded by a team at the British Antarctic Survey leaving the Halley Research Station, they witnessed the iceberg begin its journey into the Weddell Sea. The Halley Research Station used to be located on the part of the ice now floating away in the form of the A81 iceberg itself. It’s continuing to move and is currently 150km south of where it broke from the ice shelf.
