It's like watching 'Manhattan breaking apart in front of your eyes', says filmmaker James Balog. He's describing the largest iceberg calving ever filmed, as featured in his movie, Chasing Ice. After weeks of waiting, the filmakers witnessed 7.4 cubic km of ice crashing off the Ilulissat glacier in Greenland. Chasing Ice, released in the UK on Friday, follows James Balog's mission to document Arctic ice being melted by climate change.


There is only a few minutes of recording in that video
the total colapse was apx 75min of duration
and they had to wait and remain in place for weeks for this event !
i wonder how far they were filming from it ..

Put the volume up to hear the monster sound it make

Kind of remind me of a scene in the movie 2012
where you see big chunk of land turning and going down in the ocean
It is so incredible to see when you are beside at a safe distance
but it could be the end of your world if you are standing on it

Do these event happens a lot ?
Can it make the sea level go up ?
Does 2012 have something to do with it ?
Do we have something to be worried about ?

Wow, so that's where ice cubes come from


Like the commentator states, it's hard to get scale from the video but it's obviously massive... and 75 minutes of this event. Very cool stuff!

Lucky guys!

Wow that was cool.
Anyone else love the sound the ice makes when breaking or is that just me?

I know it's not, but i swear i would totally buy a spaceship coming up from the beneath the ice at the 2:02 mark if this were a big-budget film. The color and lines of that rock/ice is perfect for a ship, even the shape totally works.

I'm surprised and glad that nobody has said that the water level is going to rise due to the melting of the ice! First time I heard that on the news, after Al Gore came out with his global warming propaganda, I couldn't stop laughing for weeks. My father was really scared and I had to explain to him that the water level would remain the same even if all the icebergs melt at the same time!

I must admit it did look like it for a few seconds, maybe just wishful thinking on my part.

Brilliant video, must have been amazing watching this!
Can I just ask, what if any, impact will this have on sea temperatures
Or weather patterns?

Man, you can really feel them amount and magnitude of energy needed to move an ice field....just insane. The rumbling sounds like that of a thunderstorm.

Congratulation for being useful idiot of corporate propaganda.

Salty water have greater buoyancy which makes ( long term ice - which loses salt in time ) actually increasing water level after melting.

Not to mention melting all those icebergs that reach bottom and all the ice on normal land ...

You sir are a .....
