Giant Icebergs

An iceberg the size of Luxembourg has broken off from a glacier in Antarctica after being rammed by another giant iceberg, scientists said on Friday, in an event that could affect ocean circulation patterns...."The calving itself hasn't been directly linked to climate change but it is related to the natural processes occurring on the ice sheet," said Rob Massom, a senior scientist at the Australian Antarctic Division and the Antarctic Climate and Ecosystems Cooperative Research Center in Hobart, Tasmania.
The calving hasn't been directly linked to climate change ....yet.   I posted Dec. 1, 2009 on how the hole in the ozone layer has slowed climate change in Antarctica to date.
