Icebergs from Wilkins Ice Shelf Float Past Latady Island70.7S 74.9W
Icebergs from the desintegrated Wilkins Ice Shelf continue to break away from the Antarctic Peninsula and move into the open ocean.
These icebergs were previously contained by an ice bridge reaching Charcot Island (partially visible, far left), until it shattered about seven weeks ago.
In the full image, the icebergs can be seen floating off in all directions. Many can be observed left of Latady Island (bottom), others towards Rothschild Island (top).
The ice shelf and Latady Island remain connected, however fractures near the border continue to widen.
