Do you know how large the biggest iceberg ever recorded was?

The Ross ice shelf is the largest ice shelf in Antarctica, roughly the size of France! The chunk of ice (iceberg) 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! Tough to comprehend right? Picture the state of Connecticut on a map. It’s about the same size!

While this photograph is not of the largest iceberg in the world, it was an incredible experience to see and capture the melting sea ice along the Antarctica Peninsula this year!
