Are icebergs broken off glaciers?

    That’s correct, an iceberg is a large piece of freshwater ice that has broken off a glacier.

    To be classified as an iceberg, the height of the ice must be greater than 16 feet (five meters) above sea level and the thickness must be 98-164 feet (30-50 meters) and the ice must cover an area of at least 5,382 square feet (500 square meters).

    Icebergs are monitored worldwide by the U.S. National Ice Center (NIC). NIC is the only organization that names and tracks all Antarctic Icebergs.
