Glacial calving is a way in which a glacier loses mass by large portions of it breaking off. This often happens when the glaciers passes into a body of water and large chunks break off. It is the main reason that icebergs are created.
Glacial calving is when a chunk of a glacier breaks off and becomes an iceberg. In certain cases, as often happens with Alaskan glaciers, a glacier will calve at such a point that the resulting iceberg is actually big enough to be considered a glacier itself.
It is the process of removing mass from a glacier. It involves the separation of portions of the glacier ice into the water body.
