going beyond expectations for global vegetation monitoring
Larsen C A-68 Antarctica

Larsen C is the fourth largest Antarctic ice shelf, with an area of about 44,000 km2. From July 2017 onwards, a large iceberg (A-68) with an area of 5,800 km2 started to calf off from the main shelf and is gradually splintering into smaller icebergs. This calving and splintering process can be seen by comparing the 100 m image of 7 January 2018 with the image of 4 November 2017.
