Dramatic photos of icebergs

Photos Logo Photos | Slide 1 of 41: A tabular iceberg can be seen on the right, floating among sea ice just off of the Larsen C ice shelf. The iceberg's sharp angles and flat surface indicate that it probably recently calved from the ice shelf.

Formed after breaking off from glaciers or ice shelves, icebergs travel great distances while floating on water. Most of them float harmlessly on the oceans and bays, but sometimes they come close to coastal settlements. We look at icebergs from around the world.
