Photo: Iceberg Melting Great Caribou Island Labrador

An iceberg has grounded itself along the coast of Great Caribou Island in Labrador, Canada and continues its melting process while stranded.

This iceberg has been melting for some time on its journey to Labrador, Canada and has finally grounded itself along the coast of Great Caribou Island. It will remain along the coast of the island until it becomes small enough for the remains to break free into the open waters once again.The large waves that roll across the ocean will either keep the iceberg grounded for sometime on Great Caribou Island or the power of the water will force it to free itself. If the weather begins to warm up, melting of the iceberg happens much more quickly than in cold, rainy conditions.While the iceberg is melting, chunks of ice will crack away into the ocean everyday until their is nothing left. The shape, size and coloring of an iceberg changes continuously as this massive piece of ice slowly disintegrates into the water.The blue coloring glistening through the ice is very unique with the base of the iceberg giving off a greenish color under the surface of the water. ... continue below the picture...

... Water is trickling off the point of this iceberg and chunks are crashing into the water as the smaller the iceberg becomes, the faster the melting becomes.To see these natural phenomenons while in Labrador, Canada, board a boat tour that takes you out into the ocean where you are surrounding by gigantic icebergs. Considering this iceberg is between 10 and 15,000 years old, it will not take long to melt once it reaches the waters of Labrador.There are a couple of months each year when the ice creations make their way to the region around Great Caribou Island, so do not put off this tour until it becomes too late. The earlier in the season you book a tour, the larger each iceberg is.Iceberg grounded along the coast of Great Caribou Island, near St Lewis Inlet, Atlantic Ocean, Southern Labrador, Labrador, Canada.
