How does iceberg collisions affect the environment?

    One of the major effects of iceberg collisions and breakage is that it lowers the levels of oxygen in the oceans. Which in turn effects all life underwater. As one article, that discussed the impact of an iceberg that broke off of Antarctica, put it, “Experts are concerned about the effect of the massive displacement of ice on the ice-free water next to the glacier, which is important for ocean currents and there may be regions of the world’s oceans that lose oxygen causing some of the life there to diminish.”

    It can also create hazardous conditions for boats and ships trying to navigate through the area, as collisions can create debris when it breaks into multiple smaller icebergs scattered throughout the waters.
