NASA releases photos of rectangular iceberg in Antarctica

A Landsat 8 satellite image shows part of the northern Antarctic Peninsula with an arrow pointing to the rectangular

During the survey, created to assess changes in the ice height of several glaciers draining into the Larsen A, B and C embayments, IceBridge senior support scientist Jeremy Harbeck spotted a very sharp-angled, tabular iceberg floating among sea ice just off of the Larsen C ice shelf.

According to NASA officials, the rectangular icebergs appeared to be "freshly calved" from Larsen C, which the parted ways from the iceberg now known as A-68 parted in July 2017.

New photos of a surprisingly rectangular iceberg are offering the full picture of this now-famous Antarctic structure-and it remains weird as hell.

The image was captured on NASA's IceBridge flight, an airborne survey of the Earth's polar ice yielding three-dimensional detailed views of ice sheets, ice shelves and sea ice in both the Arctic and Antarctic.

Because the world was absolutely not satisfied before, NASA has released even more images of that baffling, almost perfectly rectangular-shaped iceberg.

The us space Agency NASA showed a picture of an iceberg a ideal rectangular shape, with smooth surface and sharp angles.

They also plan to study the harmful effects of these plastics on humans. "Every single person can actually make a difference". These two microplastics combined to make up almost 80 per cent of the total microplastic level found in the eight subjects.

As per a statement by Harbeck, he said that at first he thought it was pretty interesting and he often sees the icebergs with the relatively straight edges. Image: NASA/Jeremy HarbeckInterestingly, Harbeck spotted a second rectangular iceberg during the same October 16, 2018 flyby.

Another rectangular iceberg spotted by the IceBridge team. The A-68 iceberg can also been seen in the distance.

The new image comes just days after a photo of a perfectly rectangular iceberg found in the northern Antarctic Peninsula was widely shared online.

NASA's Operation IceBridge is an ongoing mission to monitor polar regions and track the planet's global climate system.

Non-tabular icebergs are the ones we tend to think about in the more traditional sense, but our steep-sided and flat-topped friends have something in common with their more recognizable cousins: they likely take on a more geometric shape below the surface, making them just as hazardous for passing ships.

The flight originated from Punta Arenas, Chile, as part of a five-week-long IceBridge deployment, which began October 10 and is scheduled to conclude November 18.
