Much of an iceberg is below the surface which led to the expression “tip of the iceberg” to illustrate a small part of a larger unseen issue. Icebergs are considered a serious maritime hazard. The 1912 loss of the RMS Titanic led to the formation of the International Ice Patrol in 1914.

Icebergs calved by glaciers that face the open sea, such as in Greenland, are irregular shaped piles. In Antarctica, ice shelves calve large tabular (table top) icebergs. The biggest iceberg ever recorded was Iceberg B-15A which split off the Ross Ice Shelf in Antarctica in 2000.

Forty Years on an Iceberg” Song lyrics

Forty years on an iceberg / make #10 four times with hands
Sailing the ocean wide / wave motion
Nothing to wear but pyjamas / slide hands up body from toes to head
Nothing to do but slide / slide hands down body from head to toes
The wind was cold and icy / shiver, arms around body
The frost began to bite / chomping motion with hands
I had to hug a polar bear / hug body
To keep me warm at night night night night
