Infographic | The inside story of an iceberg

There are only a few places on the planet where you can easily see an iceberg floating by, and Newfoundland and Labrador happens to be one of them. Tourism ads celebrate the giants that travel each year through Iceberg Alley, visitors cherish their photographs, and even the most cynical among us are awestruck in their presence.

How much do you know about icebergs? Our thanks to Steve Bruneau, the world-renowned iceberg researcher at Memorial University, in Canada’s Atlantic Canadian province of Newfoundland and Labrador, for his notes on these Arctic giants.
