In December 2006 an iceberg appeared off the coast of New Zealand, down around Dunedin.
Now a whole swarm may be on their way:
Australian scientists say a large mass of 20 icebergs is heading towards New Zealand. …
“From satellite images we can see there is a whole group of icebergs, roughly spread over an area of 1000 kilometres by 700 kilometres, moving with the ocean current away from Antarctica,” Young says.
“The scientists working on the southern tip of the island were astounded to see an iceberg of about 2km in length.”
He says the icebergs are likely to continue heading to the north and east in the general direction of New Zealand.
I doubt they’d get as far north as Wellington, and I can’t see how any would end up in Cook Strait, so I guess I won’t see them. But if you’re down south, keep an eye out for the frozen stuff.
