According to Professor Geraint Tarling of the University of East Anglia, the icebergs were named: (A76) – larger and (A81a) – smaller. The big one is twice the size of the second iceberg the size of London. It took several days for Discovery to completely bypass the larger iceberg.
But scientists still managed to take water samples from the A76 ice using special pipes.
At the same time, it is not the icebergs themselves that are dangerous for shipping, but the so-called earrings, which will break and float closer to the shipping lanes. According to scientists, it will take decades for icebergs to melt naturally.
