Ice calving is the breaking off of chunks of ice at the edge of a glacier, usually caused by the glacier expanding and associated with climate change. The amazing footage you’re just about to see has been registered as the largest glacier calving event to ever be captured on film. The record was filed by the 2016 Guinness Book of World Records. The historic breakup that lasted for about 75 minutes was caught on film by Adam LeWinter and director Jeff Orlowsk during an expedition at the Ilulissat Glacier in Western Greenland.
