On January 22, 2023, a 1,550 square kilometer (580 square mile) iceberg calved from the southwestern side of the Brunt Ice Shelf near the British Antarctic base Halley VI. The iceberg has been named A-81 by the US National Ice Center. This calving had been anticipated for several years because of the reactivation of a rift nicknamed Chasm 1, which began in 2012. The steady growth of Chasm 1 since then prompted a move of the Halley VI research base to a safer location in 2016, known as Halley VIa. A rapidly-developing new rift east of an ice rise (McDonald Ice Rumples) released a 1,270 square kilometer (490 square miles) iceberg, A-74, two years ago. A pair of Landsat 8 images reveals the overall changes in the ice shelf since early 2021. 041b061a72
