Scientists from the University of Delft and the Royal Netherlands Meteorological Institute (KNMI) have analysed hydroacoustic data of the CTBTO’s International Monitoring System (IMS) to follow the trajectories of icebergs. Their findings were published in the Geophysical Research Letter. They discovered that icebergs make sounds as they crack and disintegrate while migrating to warmer waters in the North-East Indian Ocean. Further, the team found that this new tracking method using hydroacoustic data is more accurate and less weather-dependent than satellite tracking of icebergs.
