Default Not what is it but what's it called?

This is Greenland's Petermann Glacier. A huge section has just broken off and created an iceberg. Question...when a big chunk of ice separates from a glacier and becomes an iceberg, what is that event called?

No you can't look it up. You have to guess like the rest of us.

Well, first we have to figure out what they speak over there, which is another game by itself.

Nordic?? Is Nordic a language?

Apparently most of them speak Inuktitut, which I never heard of until I Googled just now, and a minority speak Danish. I had heard of that. I thought they all spoke Danish.

It just proves that Wade should have used an event in Iceland as his example, instead of an event in Greenland. We know what they speak in Iceland: islenska.

Yes, that is the answer, It is called Calving.. Same as when a cow delivers offspring. (Old Dairy Farm boy here.. Kind of handy this year growing up on a dairy farm... I turn on the tv and I get "Deja-Moo" The feelling that I've shoveled that stuff myself many times.)

Calving is indeed the correct answer. If no one got it by today I was going to put up a picture of a cow as a clue.

Nope, went on a cruise to Alaska and saw it happening. Sounds like thunder.
