NASA scientists are watching Antarctica's ice shelf in Braint, where they expect an iceberg about twice as big as New York, which will soon be interrupted.
Scientists warned on Sunday that the mass iceberg would soon be relaxed or will be disrupted by the Antarctic Antarctic ice shelf, and they are increasingly worried about the "uncertain future" that creates future opportunities for research there. The iceberg is expected to be about twice as big as New York, according to NASA scientists who have seen cracks growing through the ice shelf in recent years.
"It is still unclear how the ice shelf will remain after the break, putting an uncertain future for scientific infrastructure and human presence on the shelf that was first created in 1
As a remarkable a crack that emerged in October 2016 continues to advance east, scientists said their "more immediate concern" is a major rift that runs through the Brutal Ice Shelf, NASA said that although the rift was " stable about 35 years ago, "this crack has recently begun speeding north as fast as 4 kilometers (nearly 2.5 miles) a year.

When this rift slips to the other crack, about 660 square miles of ice will break out of the shelf, the scientists warned. They said that although it was unlikely to become "top 20 on the list of Antarctica's biggest icebergs," it might be the biggest bargain to break away from the Bunt Ice shelf ever since the observations began over 1915. " "to see if the loss will lead to further shifting the shelf and eventually become unstable or will collapse."
