Petermann Ice Island PII-A Within Three Miles off Newfoundland

The Petermann Ice Island PII-A is within 5 km (3 miles) from the shores off St. Anthony, Newfoundland. The MODIS Terra image of this morning shows PII-A sitting in water 100 meters (330 feet) deep. The island may be partially grounded, because its thickness is close to the water depth.
