Photo: Aerial Iceberg Underwater Picture Atlantic Ocean

The massive area of ice underwater, as seen in this aerial picture, acts like a sail as the iceberg is carried south on the cold Labrador currents and along the coast of Newfoundland on the Atlantic Ocean.

This large tabular iceberg looks harmless enough as it cruises the Atlantic Ocean, but from this aerial photo it's easy to see where the phrase "tip of the iceberg" comes from. Because the density of pure ice is less compared to sea water, only approximately one tenth of an iceberg can be seen above the water, while the other nine tenths are concealed underwater. Often the base which is concealed underwater, fans out making it treacherous for shipping traffic as the iceberg is closer and larger than it appears.

At any given time large sections of the iceberg can break off, which in turn changes its balance - sometimes causing it to flip over without warning. For this reason it is not recommended to get too close to an iceberg.

A great place to go iceberg watching by ... continue below the picture...
