Wow, thought i was risking it....
Strange, we did have a larger colony much, much, much further to the West. We haven't heard from it for a long time. Hope they are ok.

You mean Canada ? Trees are going to become scarce there given the lumbermills output...

Anyways it seems that Sentinel is doing good science !

Well, the article I read said the iceberg was the size of Delaware. Maybe that's the colony you refer to.

Last time I checked the Dupont family owned half of it.

Title Giant berg on the move
Released 20/09/2017 5:04 pm
Copyright contains modified Copernicus Sentinel data (2017), processed by ESA, CC BY-SA 3.0 IGO
Description
Witnessed by the Copernicus Sentinel-1 mission on 12 July 2017, a lump of ice more than twice the size of Luxembourg broke off the Larsen C ice shelf, spawning one of the largest icebergs on record and changing the outline of the Antarctic Peninsula forever. Over the following two months, systematic observations from Sentinel-1 showed that the A68 berg remained close, buffeting back and forth against the ice shelf. It was unclear what would happen to the berg because they can remain in one place for years.
However, the mission has revealed that A68 is now on the move and drifting out to sea. Images from 16 September show that there is a gap of about 18 km as the berg appears to be turning away from the shelf.
