Caption: Glacier. View of a large glacier as it enters the sea. A cruise ship is seen just in front of the glacier at lower centre. When glaciers reach the sea, the leading ice starts to float, and they are known as tidal glaciers. Due to the unstable nature of the water, great strain is placed on the terminal wall of a tidal glacier, and large chunks of ice often break off, floating away from the glacier as icebergs. This is one of the more common methods of iceberg formation. This is the Hubbard glacier in Alaska, USA.
