Huge iceberg could destroy tiny island in Greenland

Fritz Ploug Nielsen

"Fortunately, the iceberg moved further north over the weekend", Jakob Rousøe, head of operations for Joint Arctic Command, an authority within the Danish Defense, which is supporting local police and emergency services.

The Avannaata Municipality was alarmed on 11 July, after a huge iceberg was grounded just outside the village of Innaarsuit.

The iceberg is 650 feet (0.19 kilometres) wide - almost the length of two football fields - and rises 300 feet (0.09 kilometres) above sea level, according to the New York Times.

That is why the established order that have taken in accomplishment to abandon people existing neighboring most of the water from the Innaarsuit village where iceberg has parked itself on the shoreline.

New York University professor David Holland, an expert in atmospheric and ocean science, said it is "the largest event we've seen in over a decade in Greenland".

Holland says "In these shallow bays, these icebergs are trapped on the ground floor".

Last summer, four people died after waves swamped houses in northwestern Greenland after an natural disaster. "It's like predicting earthquakes, it's a very complex underlying physics of large things that break".

Hogg says "Greenland has only one swimming pool".

Villagers at risk have been moved to safer areas of the community, with school buildings, a daycare center and relatives offering sanctuary from the behemoth berg, deputy chief officer Lina Davidsen told KNR.

"If you think about it, why would they be able to swim?" she said. Fortunately, last night the icebergs were still there, not moving.

Greenland is spoiled for stunning fjords, and hauntingly lovely alien-like ice-scapes - but what happens when these jaw-dropping glaciers or icebergs split, or snap, from rising ocean temperatures?
