The huge berg is estimated to be about 270 square miles (700 square kilometers) in area, about the size of nation of Singapore or double the size of the city of Atlanta.
"An iceberg that size could survive for a year or longer and it could drift a long way north in that time and end up in the vicinity of world shipping lanes in the Southern Ocean," Robert Marsh, a scientist at the University of Southampton in England, said in a press release this week.

I thnk Nestle would be intereted in this
They could construct a bottled water plant on it.
Then ship it via container vessels who pull up along side.
I just saved BCs groundwater with this brilliant plan.

Ice shelf closer to breaking away with 3 miles to go.
An enormous iceberg, more than 2,000 square miles in area — or nearly the size of Delaware — is poised to detach from one of the largest floating ice shelves in Antarctica and float off in the Weddell Sea, south of the tip of South America.Scientists have been expecting the break from the Larsen C ice shelf, monitoring the progress of a crack that extended to over 100 miles long in recent months.
The latest update from scientists with NASA and the University of California, Irvine found that only three remaining miles of ice continue to connect the impending iceberg to the larger shelf.

After the last ice age they recorded* some bigger icebergs.
* recorded in the Beaver Tales Journal 17,000 BC
During the last ice age sea level was at least 394 feet (120 m) lower than it is today, exposing much more area on the continents.
