Soundscape: Death of an Iceberg

Death of an Iceberg (2:10) The death of an iceberg is surprisingly loud, according to new research published in the July issue of the journal Oceanography. The amount of energy released during the 20-minute breakup of one of these floating islands of ice in Antarctica is equivalent to the noise produced by about 214 supertankers.
