Most of the 10,000 to 40,000 icebergs blown to Buffin Bay and Labrador Sea every year originate from the west coast of Greenland. Every spring and summer, the pressure of the glacier, waves and winds in the sea as well as tide will cause lumps of ice to break from the glacier at the fjord. These icebergs are moved and sunk by wind and currents. Some enormous wind and water-eroded icebergs spend 2 to 3 years (or more) on the move across the North Atlantic. Some even travel across Latitude 40 degree north and one even became the cause of one of the most disastrous sea catastrophes in history, sinking the Titanic ocean liner in 1912, causing about 1,500 deaths. Greenlandıs glacier originates from snow deposits accumulated over 100,000 years and is the worldıs second largest glacier after the Antarctic glacier. It covers 82% of the entire island, and some parts of it are as thick as 3,000 meters. If all the ice here melts, the sea level in the ocean will rise nearly 7 metres. Global warming is causing the polar glacier at Greenland to melt at a rate of 248 m3 per year. Scientific research shows that this phenomenon has been accelerating over the past 10 years.
