Looking at today’s iceberg chart at the Canadian Ice Service you’ll see a huge amount of icebergs on the grid:

Is this a reason to get excited? Yes, if you like icebergs it sure is, but only when you keep in mind that the vast majority of these bergs is still stuck in the ice:

In all this sea ice the icebergs have little room to move or break free, so it could be a while before we see them on our coast.

Still, it’s pretty exciting!
