I don't know much about Glaciers either, but I am wondering if anyone is planning on taking core samples of it. I love reading about things that are found in them as they melt.

"mom", its odd that you would bring that up, because everytime I look at the first photo in this thread, there is a black "layer", running through the iceburg (on the left). It is much different in color than the rest of the 'burg. Almost like a thick layer of "ash" or "dirt", but I only see one of these "stripes", making me want to subscribe to the thought that, whatever is responsible for it, only occurred once, or over a relatively "short" amount of time. A core sample, would tell us basically what it is and "roughly", when it was deposited. In all likelyhood scientists probably took core samples "before" this occurence, and its a matter of accessing the data...hopefully.

Actually it appears there is two darker stripes. I wonder if the timing of these anomolies, coincides with a couple of the "mass extinctions", that have taken place?
