Iceberg Closes In on South Georgia

Antarctic iceberg A-68A has drifted menacingly close to South Georgia, a remote island in the southern Atlantic Ocean. Klaus Strübing, a scientist with the International Ice Charting Group (IICWG), thinks the iceberg might already be grounded. He reported that as of December 13, part of the iceberg was in waters just 76 meters deep. History has shown that icebergs travel complex paths on their drift northward from the Southern Ocean into the warmer waters of the South Atlantic. In 2004, that iceberg stalled for several months in a similar location as A-68A before ultimately drifting around the island.
