Caption: Calving glacier front. Chunks of ice fall from a glacier into the ocean, where they become icebergs. This process is known as calving and is one way in which icebergs are born. When a glacier arrives at the coast it becomes less stable. Cracks develop and the glacier weakens. Huge chunks of ice often fall into the sea, as seen here. This is the Perito-Moreno Glacier, Patagonia, Argentina.
