Scientists kept a close eye on the Larsen C ice shelf when a large rift appeared in it in late August last year. They kept watching as the crack in the shelf inched closer and closer to the edge before calving and effectively creating an iceberg this summer that was 2,200 square miles wide.
The iceberg broke off in July and since then scientists have been waiting to see where it would travel and how it would change as it floated along.
