An iceberg in the Ilulissat Fjord which likely calved from the Jakobshavn Isbrae, Greenland's fastest-moving glacier. Legend has it that this glacier produced the iceberg that sunk the Titanic.

Ilulissat Iceberg and Sea Ice

Massive icebergs float in and around Ilulissat Fjord, Greenland.
Icebergs have always calved off of glaciers where they hit the sea, but the rate of calving is accelerating with climate change.
Greenland's rate of ice loss has accelerated to five times what it was in the early 1990s, recent research shows.
