How big are icebergs?

 Q:   Ask a Question about How big are icebergs?       
How big are icebergs? Some icebergs are bigger than an entire country. The biggest iceberg ever recorded was larger than Belgium, with an area of 31,000 sq km. These giant icebergs break away from the polar ice sheets when the rise and fall of the tide crack the ice.

For centuries, icebergs have been feared as a hazard to shipping, culminating in the famous sinking of the Titanic.

Now meteorological aircraft and space satellites plot the path of drifting icebergs so ships can be warned of their presence.
