In April 2000, satellite images indicated that a large crack had developed in the Ward Hunt Ice Shelf; by 2002 the shelf had completely split in two.
"These substantial calving events underscore the rapidity of changes taking place in the Arctic," said polar scientist Derek Mueller of Trent University.
Scientists say Arctic ice shelves located along the northern coast of Canada's Ellesmere Island have undergone massive changes during the summer of 2008.
The entire Markham Ice Shelf broke away in early August and is now adrift in the Arctic Ocean.
And two large sections of ice detached from the Serson Ice Shelf, reducing its size by 60 percent.
