What is the largest iceberg ever recorded?

The largest icebergs (also referred to as ice islands) originate from the vast ice shelves surrounding Antarctica. The largest-known iceberg was from this region. It was roughly the size of the state of Rhode Island.

The tallest known iceberg in the North Atlantic was 550 feet high. Extending out of the water to almost the height of the Washington Monument, it is the tallest iceberg recorded to date.
