Operation IceBridge NASA on Wednesday, November 7, successfully flew over a three-fold manhattan iceberg – the first time no one has put an eye on the big iceberg, called B-46 from the United States National Ice Center, which broke off Island Glacier Pine in late October.

Pine Island Glacier

Ynys Pine glacier in West Antarctica is known for the distribution of ice frostes in the Amundsen Sea, but the frequency of such incidents appears to be on the rise. The Imaging Land Operational (OLI) was on Landsat 8 this image of the new iceberg on November 7, 2018.

In comparison, the second OLI image shows the same area on September 17, 2018, before moving a rotation quickly across the glacier and creating the bergs.

The IceBridge team's Wednesday flight plan over the Pine Island Glacier took part as part of the long-term campaign to collect sea-ice ice measurements, glaciates, and critical regions of ice sheets and Earth. As the NAS-8 NASA flew its pre-set flight pattern, the new iceberg that was signed in late October also saw it.

On October 29, the National Ice Center, which traces icefowl for navigation purposes, estimated a B-46 area at 66 square miles, although IceBridge satellite and flying images show that the main iceberg is already starting to break.

There are ice shelves, up-to-date glaciated ice areas that surround many Antarctica, as ice satellites as part of the natural ice process that flows out to the sea. But scientists are also watching closely to see if the frequency of calf incidents change over time. At the end of 2016, IceBridge saw a gracious start across the kitchen ~ about 22 miles wide the Island of Pine Glacier. He took a year for the set to complete the ice-maker of the B-44 name to cut off in September 2017. It was noted that the crack that would become B -46 later in September 2018 and broke the ice down about a month later. Ynys Pine has now signed the ice ice in 2013, 2015, 2017, and 2018. Prior to that part, the glacier was experiencing large calf incidents for every six years.

The nearby Pine Island and Thwaites Glacier contribute about 1 millimeter every decade to the rise in global sea level, as their flow of ice to the sea has accelerated in recent years, according to NASA's research.
