Ice Island The Expedition to Antarctica's Largest Iceberg By Gregory S. Stone, Wes Skiles (Photographs by)

In March of 2000 4500 square miles of ice broke free from the Ross Ice Shelf in Antarctica and the world's largest iceberg was born. The size of Jamaica, 170 miles long by 26 miles wide and more than half a mile deep, B-15 contained enough water in the form of 1000 cubic miles of ice, to supply the US for five years. As it carved free from the Antarctic shelf it became the largest fast moving object on earth. "Ice Island" is the story of a scientific expedition and adventure in one of the most hostile regions of the planet. Marine biologist Greg Stone and photographer Wes Skiles assembled a team of scientists, explorers, sailors and a helicopter pilot to find and study the phenomenon of B-15 nicknamed "Godzilla". Through amazing photographs "Ice Island" takes the reader on a journey to make contact with this huge new born habitat and ecosystem and to explore what giant melting icebergs mean in the context of 21st century global warming.
