This is the second largest iceberg to break off the Brant shelf in recent years. The previous split took place in February 2021. The new iceberg has an area of ​​1,550 square kilometers (Peter’s area is 1,439 square kilometers), Dominic Hodgson, a glaciologist with the British Antarctic Survey, told Gizmodo. Scientists expect the newly formed iceberg to follow in the footsteps of its predecessor, A-74, and move with the Antarctic Coastal Current.

The Brant Ice Shelf is home to the British research station Halley VI and is one of the most closely monitored ice shelves on Earth.
