Large Iceberg splits in 3 parts in Antarctica

iceberg

A new iceberg about the size of the island of Mallorca split up in the Antarctic.

Scientists are warning that the melting process might be repeated on a larger scale if the climate continues to get warmer, causing global sea levels to rise significantly.

The huge iceberg, named B-15A, split into three smaller icebergs:
B15M, B-15P and B-15N.
