Glacier calving… caused by ocean currents or global warming? Coastal glaciers come to a spectacular end in a process called "calving". As the glaciers flow towards the ocean they push over uneven ground. This can create cracks, and crevasses are formed. Reaching the sea, the ice breaks off at the crevasses. If the glacier or ice stream is still intact when it reaches the sea it doesn't break up immediately. The waves hollow it out from below. The higher parts lose their support and fall into the ocean. This is how icebergs are created. In the Antarctic and in Greenland, these icebergs are often the size of skyscrapers - if measured from base to top.
