Summary of the Article: In recent decades, a major environmental issue has been the melting of ice in places where it plays such a large role due to increase in annual average temperature. In this article, however, the author tells us that in Antarctica, due to a growing rift, the Larsen C Ice Shelf is beginning to split in half, which will cause a large iceberg to be created. This will decrease the size of the ice shelf by more than 5,000 square miles, an event that will alter the landscape of the Antarctic Peninsula drastically. The glaciers created from the breaking of the ice will move towards the ocean, and the impact that this ice will have on the ocean ecosystems is definitely a story to watch. The studies show that it is only a matter of time before yet another Larsen Ice Sheet will split, as Larsen B disintegrated in 2002.
