Ice bergs are eroded by a combination
of temperatures above freezing and the effects of wave action. Here
in a fairly rough sea, waves are washing up the side of this berg to
a point about 2 metres above sea level and will probably make two separate
upright areas that are divided by the developing trough. We did for
a short time consider trying to speed through the gap when it was awash
in our small powerfully driven zodiac boat, but decided against it -
probably for the best!
