Can you guess what an average life span of an iceberg is?
It depends on its size, but usually, it is about two years for icebergs in the Northern Hemisphere and 3-4 years for more massive icebergs from Antarctica.
Most icebergs have wholly melted by the time they reach about 40 degrees latitude (north or south). There have been rare occasions when icebergs have drifted as far south as Bermuda (32 degrees north), which is located about 900 mi (1,400 km) east of Charleston, South Carolina. In the Atlantic Ocean, they have also been found as far east as the Azores, islands in the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of Spain.
