Video captures only the biggest crybs.
The lens is a special section in which we present interesting pictures or videos from the world of science and technology.
In the early years of the 21st century, it seemed that the Antarctic Ice Island's Pine Island would break its cry every five years. However, since the 2013, a large piece of ice was broken four times.
The visualization of Pixel Movers & Makers, which creates information animations, only confirms the tendency of icebergs to be caught more often.
The authors collected data from the JPL Laboratory from the US National Aeronautics and Space Administration, the European Space Agency, and other sources in the past four decades.
However, the animation shows only ice crystals that are large enough to capture satellites from space.
After the crystals leave the shoreline, they are left behind by the sea flow and the wind around Antarctica.
The animation shows that the ice crystals move counter-clockwise to the Antarctic coast.
As some get further away, they will catch the distant sea stream called West Fall, which carries the hills further to the oceans. Detailed monitoring enabled satellites reaching the universe in the second half of the last century.
Video captures another trend. As we got closer to today, more icebergs broke down than Antarctica.
