‘152 billion tons of freshwater released into the ocean as a result of an iceberg
By Lydia Cherian
The sixth-largest iceberg in the world gradually melted until 152 billion tons of freshwater flooded the ocean
The iceberg floated toward South Georgia Island, which is located in the southern part of the Atlantic Ocean.
Researchers are concerned about the impact of this overflow of water on ocean currents and animals.
The waters near South Georgia are home to certain endangered species, and the huge influx of water may change the route in which these species can attain food, which may result in the migration of these animals to another part of the ocean.
