A photograph of the sea floor collected January 2002 in front of the Larsen B ice shelf. The position from which the photo was taken was recently beneath a much larger Larsen B shelf as recently as two years ago. The bottom shows a seafloor paved with cobbles and pebbles that were probably released from icebergs as the ice shelf broke up for the first time in 1999. Water depth is about 500 meters (1640 feet).
