Oceanographer Dave Sutherland discuses why the location and timing of iceberg melt matters to locals, ship captains and to the entire globe. Learn about global climate, icebergs and ice melt. Skyscraper-sized icebergs break off Greenland’s glaciers, falling into fjords then making their way out to the North Atlantic Ocean. Some of these icebergs make their way down the coast of Canada and into shipping lanes—made famous by the Titanic disaster—but a majority of the ice melts close to Greenland.
