Climate change: large chunk of Greenland ice shelf breaks off

Sep 15, 2020 11:08 IST

In north-east Greenland, a big chunk broke off from the Arctic's largest remaining ice shelf, the 79N. The chunk of ice that broke away from the shelf is called the Spalte Glacier, which now looks like a 'flotilla of icebergs'! Satellite images show how the chunk has broken into small pieces owing to climate change. Researchers from the Friedrich-Alexander University in Germany shared that 2019 and 2020 have seen record-high summer temperatures in the region.
