How far south do iceburgs make it before they melt?



  1. 0 Votes

    Usually, some icebergs can make it to about the 40 degree north latitude (about 800 kilometers south of St. John’s, in Canada’s province of Newfoundland). Note that only about 1% of all icebergs will even make it this south at all. Apparently, though, there have been unusual sightings below this latitude, but they are immensely rare.

    It depends on where the iceberg is coming from. Ones that come from the Arctic Ocean have been known to travel into the Pacific Ocean as far south as Japan, a latitude of 42 degrees N. Ones that come from Greenland generally follow the Labrador coast into the Atlantic Ocean and melt there, around a latitude of 45 degrees N.
