Rapid disintegration of part of the Larsen B ice shelf, already dramatically collapsed in 2002, occurred two weeks ago, between January 19-20, 2022. This breakup is the latest in a series of remarkable events in the Larsen B embayment over the past twenty years triggered by several factors. This year, a warmer-than-average summer and a series of remarkable foehn storms triggered this huge umpteenth collapse.
