A large mass of ice, generally floating in the ocean.
A block of ice that has broken or calved from the face of a glacier and is floating in a body of marine of fresh water. Alaskan icebergs rarely exceed 500 feet in maximum dimension. In order of increasing size, the following names are used: Brash Ice, Growler, Bergy Bit. North-looking photograph showing an iceberg shaped like a mushroom, towering ~ 15 feet above the waters of Muir Inlet, Glacier Bay National Park, Alaska. North-looking photograph showing 300+-foot-long iceberg towering more than 40 feet above the waters of Portage Lake, Chugach National Forest, Chugach Mountains, Alaska. Near vertical aerial photograph of the southwest coast of Greenland (upper right) flanked by a large, dense field of drifting icebergs. Most icebergs are less than 400 feet in maximum length, but the large berg in the upper left is at least 1/4-mile in length.
A large block of ice that calves off the front of a glacier and drops into the sea.
An iceberg is a large chunk of ice that has broken off an ice shelf or glacier.
mass of glacial ice floating in the ocean
A large piece of floating ice that has broken off of a glacier. The greater part of its mass is below sea level.
A floating body of ice broken off a glacier. About 10 percent of its mass lies above the water surface.
A mass of ice found floating in the ocean or a lake. Often icebergs form when ice calves from land-based glaciers into the water body. Icebergs can be dangerous to shipping in high and mid-latitude regions of the ocean because 90 percent of their mass lies below the ocean surface.
A large floating mass of ice common in Arctic and Antarctic regions.
A huge floating chunk of ice broken away from a glacier
A chunk of fresh water ice "calved" from a glacier. Icebergs are harder than pack ice.
a large piece of freshwater ice or portion of a glacier that has broken away from a land mass and is freely floating in the ocean.
a large mass of ice floating at sea; usually broken off of a polar glacier
a floating mass of freshwater ice that breaks from the seaward end of a glacier or a polar ice sheet
a floating mountain of ice that has broken away from a glacier
a fragment of a glacier, which has broken off as a result of the ocean waves melting the ice near the surface, leaving the upper portion unsupported
a huge chunk of ice that floats in the water
a large mass of free-floating ice that has broken away from a glacier
a large piece of ice that has broken off from a large ice formation into the water
a large piece of ice that has broken off, or calved, from the edge of glacier into a body of water
a mass of ice that has broken off part of a glacier called calcen and has fallen into a nearby body of water
A mass of land ice that has broken away and floats in the sea, or becomes stranded in shallow water.
A large floating chunk of ice, broken off from a glacier and carried out to sea on ocean currents.
freshwater ice that has been broken off a glacier or an ice sheet or shelf. Icebergs float in the water because they are less dense than the water they are immersed in. Only 1/5th of their mass is visible above water and they come in various sizes, the largest iceberg sighted was approximately the same size as Belgium
A massive piece of ice greatly varying shape which has broken away from a glacier.
A massive piece of ice greatly varying in shape with a sail greater than 5 m. Larger and greater in mass than a bergy bit or a growler.
a floating mass of land ice detached from a glacier.
part of a glacier that calves into the ocean and floats with the currents
large mass of land ice, broken off from a glacier or from an ice shelf and floating in the sea
A large piece of floating ice that has calved, or broken off, a glacier or ice shelf. Icebergs occur in lakes and the ocean and can be vast, the size of islands or small countries. Freshwater.
A massive piece of glacier ice that has broken (calved) from the front of the glacier into a body of water.
a piece of ice that has broken off from the end of a glacier that terminates in water. Lamplugh Glacier, in Glacier Bay Alaska, shows the terminus of a typical tidewater glacier. The terminus of the glacier is heavily crevassed and jagged, and is calving small icebergs. For scale, note the man standing on the rocks in the foreground (near the center of the photograph). This photograph was taken in 1941. (Photo courtesy of W. O. Field, archived at the World Data Center for Glaciology, Boulder, CO.)
