Quirpon Island, Newfoundland The icebergs that reach the East Coast probably calved from a glacier more than a year before. They often spend a year in cold Arctic bays melting slowly (or not at all in winter) until eventually passing through the Davis Strait and into the Labrador Current. The glacial ice may be more than that 15,000 years old!
