A LONE iceberg that drifted from Antarctica to Macquarie Island has started breaking up in the warmer water, with ice chunks washing up on the Tasmanian islandís shoreline. The iceberg is the first such sighting at Macquarie station since 2009 and sits about 4-5km off the coast, with several blocks of ice yesterday washing up on West Beach. Antarctic Climate and Ecosystems CRC glaciologist Dr Jan Lieser said the iceberg likely came from East Antarctica, possibly from the Cooperation Sea.
