During an iceberg Watching Tour one can see many icebergs which show the wear and tear of the journey on the waters of Iceberg Alley in the Atlantic Ocean, Newfoundland Labrador. The iceberg's lower ledge just above the water level is detailed with grooves and gouges where the water runs off. The waters off the coast of Greenland and Labrador is known as Iceberg Alley.

An iceberg is a large piece of ice that has broken off from a glacier or an ice shelf. The iceberg floats in open water and only one-tenth of it shows above the water's surface.

An iceberg is classified by two different types, tabular and non-tabular. Tabular are like a plateau with steep sides and a flat top. Non-tabular icebergs can be in shapes such as a dome, pinnacle, wedge, dry-dock or blocky.
