In Antarctica, the giant iceberg split into pieces: scientists are concerned about the situation

In Antarctica, the giant iceberg of Pine Island, which broke off at the end of September from the ice sheet, fell apart. According to the publication, previously a huge block of 267 square kilometers is now pieces of ice, which, according to experts, will melt at a more accelerated pace. Scientists are concerned about this situation, because usually icebergs fall apart after they swim out into the open sea. But in this case he could not sail away from the shore. Presumably, due to too large ice formations.
