You need to see this incredible footage from NYUAD

A team of scientists from New York University captured a video of a 4-mile iceberg breaking away from a glacier in eastern Greenland.

The resulting iceberg, broken off from Greenland's Helheim Glacier, would stretch from lower Manhattan up to Midtown in New York City.

Perhaps the most drastic and devastating effect of the sea level rise is that according to experts and satellite surveillance there are many more fractures and breaks going on not only in Greenland but in Antarctica as well, and this is completely certain when these glaciers are looked down from space. "By capturing how it unfolds, we can see, first-hand, its breath-taking significance". Lead researcher David Holland, a professor at New York University said. They occur naturally. However, the new event is significant because it is a troubling sign with regards to future sea level rise. The grant is part of the newly announced $25-million International Thwaites Glacier Collaboration, headed by the U.K.'s Natural Environment Research Council and the National Science Foundation, which will deploy scientists to gather the data needed to understand whether the glacier's collapse could begin in the next few decades or next few centuries.

In 2017, scientists estimated that a collapse of the entire West Antarctic Ice Sheet, which is two-and-a-half miles thick and about as large as Texas, would raise global sea levels by 10 feet-inundating coastal cities around the world. "The better we understand what is happening, the more precisely we can predict and plan for climate change", explains an employee at NY University, Denise Holland.

Greenland ice sheet is the second largest mass of ice on Earth after Antarctic ice.

The impact causes the first to break up and flip over. It may also offer a chance to study iceberg calving. Meanwhile, smaller pinnacle icebergs, which are tall and thin, can be seen calving off and flipping over.

"The range of these different iceberg formation styles helps us build better computer models for simulating and modeling iceberg calving".

The event lasted more than 30 minutes, but the movie was compressed to about 90 seconds.
