Iceberg A-68A Nears South Georgia

“Most just don’t survive the journey from the Weddell to South Georgia,” Long said. The map below shows the path of A-68A, based on data from the Antarctic Iceberg Tracking Database. “The recent news about it seems to be expecting that it will ground at South Georgia. I’m not so sure.”Long agrees, noting that historical precedent suggests the iceberg is likely to pass just south of South Georgia. “If, however, it passes far enough to the south, it will miss the counter current the vortex and probably keep heading east-northeast.”Whether it becomes stuck or sails smoothly on by, Iceberg A-68A will eventually move past South Georgia.
