Antarctic Icebergs

Icebergs around Davis pretty big. Especially when they have broken off the Sorsdell Glazier.Some measure in the cubic kilometre, other just a few hundred thousand cubic metres. We travel around these monoliths in our little IRB's that have Yamaha 40 and 50 HP outboards. Be glad when we get rid of the two strokes and go 4 stroke. The bergs vary in colour from blues to emerald greens. The emeral green bergs are known as " Jade" bergs. As a rule 2/3 of the berg is hidden below the water line leaving only 1/3 to be seen. Makes you wonder what lurks below the water when traveling  around these big chunks of ice.
