Iceberg A74 (area 1,280 sq. km) calved from the Brunt/Stancomb-Wills Ice Shelf complex in February 2021. Over the next 6 months it stayed close being pushed around by winds and ocean currents. In early August strong winds pushed it past the tip of the Brunt Ice Shelf, narrowly avoiding a collision. Had the iceberg made contact with the ice shelf it would almost certainly have caused the calving of 1,680 sq km of the Brunt Ice Shelf. The interferogram below shows that only a couple of km of fracture-free ice are keeping the ice shelf intact. Please feel free to download and re-use these graphics.
