Argentina’s Upsala Glacier Iceburg Tipped Over

A group of tourists touring the Upsala Glacier in Argentina were lucky to see a huge iceberg breaking into the lake.

They were traveling in a type of boat called catamaran.

One of the tourists recorded what happened and posted it on YouTube.

It happened in March but the video was posted in May.

On March 4, 2012 a massive ice wall at the Perito Moreno glacier near the city of El Calafate, southern Argentina falled into the Lago Argentino; please click here for the photos.

Here is the video of the Argentina’s Upsala Glacier iceberg breaking:

I think the iceberg melted because of  the global warming even though some scientists do not blame global warming.

Global warming may caused lots of places to sink into the sea; please click here for: ’100 Places To Go Before They Disappear’, A Book By Gaute Hogh.

Tourists look at the Perito Moreno glacier after the rupture of a massive ice wall near the city of El Calafate in the Patagonian province of Santa Cruz, southern Argentina, March 4, 2012. The glacier, a massive tongue of ice in the Santa Cruz province that covers 250 square kilometres (97 square miles), advances yearly into a lake, known as Lago Argentino. As Perito Moreno moves forward, it cuts off a river feeding the lake. Water builds up pressure and slowly undermines the ice, forming a tunnel until ice comes tumbling down. The phenomenon repeats itself at irregular intervals, with the last major ice falls occurring in 2008. REUTERS/Andres Arce

How I wish I can be there 🙂
