IGPP glaciologist Helen Fricker predicted that the Amery Ice Shelf would calve its "Loose Tooth" by 2015. The day after Amery calved D28, Fricker spoke to the BBC about the event and her earlier prediction. Though it remains "wobbly," Amery shed a much larger iceberg, D28, which Fricker described to the BBC as being "the molar compared to a baby tooth." While this event is unrelated to climate change, "there is no cause for alarm yet for this particular ice shelf," Fricker added.
