Glacier Calving | 15 Amazing Collapses, Tsunami Waves and Icebergs

  • 🎬 Video
  • ℹ️ Description
Compilation of our most spectacular glacier calving and iceberg collapse videos! Huge chunks of ice (sometimes measuring more than 100 meters / 300 ft. in height over the water surface and hundreds of meters below) breaking off the glaciers and falling into the oceans can create tsunami-like waves, cause big icebergs to flip over or "shoot up". Glaciers and icebergs are melting in Greenland, Alaska, Argentina, Antarctica and all around the world – creating incredible spectacles for those lucky enough to be at the right place at the right time. More than 15 of these breathtaking glacier calving events are included in this montage. Of course all clips included are left with their original audio tracks; without music being added, you can listen to the cracking and melting of these ice giants.



The ice field of the Glacier Perito Moreno is the world's third largest reserve of fresh water. In the right time of the year big blocks of ice break off the glacier and drop into the water. The waves created by such glacier calving events often splash dozens of meters through the air. The glacier is one of Argentina's most beautiful natural wonders, the colors and shapes of the ice remind of a piece of art of Gaudi. The glacier itself is about 5 km (3.1 mi) wide and has an average height of 74 m (240 ft) above the surface of the water.

Well, that first iceberg break up, just put another 1/8 inch on the rising ocean water! And this most likely was filmed in 2018 or before! Whenever, there has been a lot more that has dumped in! All in North and south poles! They also say that as time goes on, it will continue to speed up! The countries of the world should go into a mass panic! Stop fighting and wake up, because most or a lot of the land will be under miles of water!! Much will change! You think Covid is bad, you wait you put the population on what earth is left! ( Like Rats in a cage!) There will be new worst diseases that will hit with no or not much left in the way of making any form of Vaccines! Oh then the sorrow will appear of why didn't my grandparents of today stop the pollution? Am I not right??? Ya most folks don't really think of all the mass changes that will come! I have ONLY touched on very little bit of thing to happen! THINK!~ If your planning on getting barried, you may as well be put out to sea, because you will be floating at sea- fish food!
