Caption: Glacial ice cliffs. View of the towering ice cliffs of a glacier in the sea. The sea around the glacier is filled with small chunks of ice known as "bergy bits". Glaciers which arrive at the coast tend to become less stable, as they float on the water. Cracks and fractures weaken the glacier, and many chunks of ice fall off into the sea. Larger chunks form full icebergs. This is one of the main methods of iceberg formation. This is the Perito Moreno Glacier, Patagonia, Argentina.
