Icebergs were formed on land and when they calve or breakoff from glacier or ice shelf they then float on water. They can pose a danger to ships traveling in the North Atlantic or in waters around Antarctica. It is wise not to get to close to an iceberg because they can roll over and then you could be caught under one.
