layered iceberg

The Daily Mail reports that a research ship 600 miles from Antarctica has found and photographed icebergs with layers dating back “hundreds, if not thousands, of years.”

It would be interesting to find a more scientific citation for these sightings. While the icebergs are visually stunning (more pictures can be seen at the article), one can’t help but wonder if they are anachronisms, rare even in geological timeframes, and yet another indication of global climate change.
