I thought this was pretty cool, and something you don't see everyday, for sure.
I sourced a youtube video of it so people can watch it quicker.


Available in 1080p

Here's an article on it:


Tourists have captured rare footage of the moment a small iceberg from the Upsala Glacier, in Argentina, flips over.

As the watching crowd chatters excitedly, the bottom half of the iceberg emerges slowly from the ocean, sending a torrent of water rushing down its side.

The footage was posted on YouTube earlier this week, and has already been viewed more than 25,000 times.


www.news.com.au...

Note the small wave created, just from this. So imagine what kind of wave could be produced from a much bigger event of this type... Here's just a small sample of one calving that sends out a pretty big wave and scares some tourists (must keep watching till end):

Beautiful!

So, since it's blue, isn't it fresh water making the iceberg itself?

Icebergs generally have calved off of the ice shelves, or glaciers (depending on specifics of location), and thus are the result of many decades of fallen snow, compacted. So, yes.....they are mostly "pure" water ice, little salt.....as in ocean salt.

Of course, there will be certain impurities, this is inherent. But, as a percentage, those will be minor.

Once IN the sea, and floating, well......they (icebergs) are subject to many environmental effects, and they can melt, over time.......the melting can cause an imbalance, which is what was seen in that video. Certainly not unusual, certainly it happens, has happened, and will continue to happen world-wide.....it's just the unique timing of a Human, with a video camera, who happened to capture it on video.

Then it could have been Moby Dick turning it over because he discovered some tasty ancient morsels frozen in the ice and already ate the ones on the bottom side. Things like bugs, birds, etc. So he turns it over to get the untapped supply...



Cause that thing looks like it has a life of its own, or is being controlled by something the way it turned over. Looks pretty bizarre to me.


Amazing...no one's claimed "fake CGI" yet...

That was pretty sweet.

I found it entirely entertaining how scared the tourist got in the second video and how calm and reassuring the guide was. He was saying its fine about 20 times lol. After the wave had passed everyone was all "oh ha ha im going to buy you a drink" but before that they were ready to jump out of the boat in fear.

Humans......so full of fear..

Cool video but would an iceberg flipping not signal that the water temperature warming has melted the ice below therefore making top heavy hence the flip?, just saying

I was about to post this the other day in the Jokes forum that Annunki has risen. But, I refrained myself.
It was pretty cool to watch though.

Great video. S&F


The first - amazing to actually see it flip..but the second... Well, I've got to admit, even with the guy saying "it's fine.." I would've been very nervous. Glad everything was "fine"
