These icebergs are calved by the Jakobshavn glacier, and may stay in the icefjord for years, before floating North with the currents, eventually turning south and down into the Atlantic ocean. They usually range in height from 1 to 75 meters. The air in the glacial ice of an iceberg is under great pressure, and crackles and pops as it melts giving rise to the term Bergie Seltzer.
