.... Newfoundland. Think how big it is UNDER the water!
That's cool, I wonder how many Slurpees you could make out of it?
the water must be deep there.. or it would have hit bottom further out..
That is amazing. 3/4s of its mass is underwater?
I bet that ice would make an amazing martini. Cant be much purer than that
If they chain it down it will keep them cool all summer .
Now I'm homesick.
Between 1977 and 1980, I was a deckhand on 150' (46m) steel, stern trawlers, mostly in winter and spring. With a crew of fifteen, we fished fifty to sixties miles off the Newfoundland coast on the Grand Banks and 120 miles off the coast of Labrador. Ten days out and two days in. We fished around the clock; eight hours on and four hours off unless we really got into the fish.
Icebergs were a constant danger. When steaming to our fishing grounds, there were always two extra sets of eyes in the wheelhouse with the Skipper or Mate.
The temps have gone up in recent years but it used to be that on the coast, if the temperature was, say, 77 Fahrenheit/25 Celsius, a common saying would be: "The sun's splittin' the rocks!" In other words, it's a really warm day.
Actually, 90% underwater- that's an IMPRESSIVE berg!
My dad was stationed at the nearby SAC support air base at Goose Bay.
When he finished his Air Force stint there, he moved the family to California.
They have a ship that does nothing but catch and harvest icebergs .The catch is split between Quidi Vidi Brewery in St Johns , Auk Island Winery in Twillingate and a cosmetics firm. Purest water you can get they say
As a Three Year-Old would say: It's THIS MANY Big!!!
So, how dos you book a Gig on that thing?
These are the kind of questions that science should focus on.
Yeah, instead of wasting their time on some stupid vaccines...
I would not like to live that close in those houses. You'd be in for a cold swim at any time.
Impressive looking piece of ice that.
Well, one apparent benefit-
Deep sea fishing right from shore...
Yes, that water is very cold, even in summer.
