Distant earthquake triggers icequake in Antarctica
from CBS News
Antarctica's ice snapped and popped because of a major earthquake in Maule, Chile, halfway around the world, a new study reports. Antarctica has been touched by great earthquakes before. In March 2011, Japan's Tohoku tsunami tore off two Manhattan-size icebergs from the Sulzberger Ice Shelf, more than 8,000 miles (13,000 kilometers) south. Sailors also reported a massive Antarctica iceberg-calving event after Chile's 1868 great earthquake.
