ETYM Prob. of Scand. origin; cf. Dan. iisbierg, Swed. isberg, properly, a mountain of ice. Related to Ice, and Berg.
A large mass of ice floating at sea; usually broken off of a polar glacier; SYN. berg.
Floating mass of ice, about 80% of which is submerged, rising sometimes to 100 m/300 ft above sea level. Glaciers that reach the coast become extended into a broad foot; as this enters the sea, masses break off and drift toward temperate latitudes, becoming a danger to shipping.
