Is the Petermann Glacier flowing out to sea?

    Not the entire glacier.  Scientists have been watching it as large chunks have broken off and drifted to see, like the billion ton iceberg that floated to Canada last summer.  The Petermann Glacier is 1,300-kmĀ² and is  the largest floating glacier in the northern hemisphere.  An 11-billion ton piece broke off in 2008.  Researchers and scientists are concerned that this is due to warmer waters from anthropogenic climate change.
