    A chunk of ice the size of downtown Manhattan fell off the Jakobshavn Glacier in Greenland on August 16, the fastest moving ice sheet in the world at present. As it melts , the glacier calves off icebergs and dumps freshwater into the North Atlantic at a rapid clip, a clip that has doubled in recent years.

    A glacier calf, or chunk of ice, measuring nearly five square miles broke away from Greenland's Jakobshavn glacier sometime in August, making it the largest piece to ever break away from one of the world's fastest melting glaciers. The iceberg was discovered when members of the Arctic Sea Ice Forum noticed the break while examining satellite images of the huge glacier this month, according to The Washington Post .

    Earlier this month, Greenland's massive and rapidly-melting Jakobshavn Glacier lost what some experts believe may have been the largest chunk of ice ever observed, and now NASA scientists have released , the new images were collected by Joshua Stevens of the US space agency's Earth Observatory using Landsat 8's Operational Land Imager. They show what the front of the glacier looked like on July 31, prior to the calving event, and on August 16, after the nearly five square-mile chunk of ice separated from the glacier.

    This optical image of Jakobshavn glacier in western Greenland, acquired by Sentinel-2A on 16 August 2015, offers a valuable perspective of the scale of the calving event that took place between 14 and 16 August. The contour indicates the area of ice lost between images acquired on 6 and 16 August.
