A stunningly powerful photo captured by NASA’s Terra satellite (via National Geographic) shows an approximately 50 mile iceberg breaking from Greenland. Icebergs breaking and melting has been scientifically documented for a while now. But did you know that studies have also documented that these free-drifting icebergs can be- at least in southern waters- a source of Iron. Intrigued? Check out this paper, this paper or this paper.
So does that mean that the next time we feel a little anemic we could jaunt over to Antartica for some iron-enriched ocean water?
