The Greenland Ice Sheet is annually producing nearly 50% more icebergs, volumetrically, than it did prior to 1995. This volumetric increase should be reflected in a similar increase in the numbers of icebergs. However, the increase in numbers is not seen along the iceberg drift route further south on the Grand Banks of Newfoundland. The presentation examines the reasons for this unanticipated and massive increase in iceberg production into the NW Atlantic and discusses possible reasons why the increase is not seen further south.
