Over the past Easter weekend this giant iceberg drifted passed Ferryland, Newfoundland.  Its hard to tell how large it actually is but it looks huge.  Use some of the data that was supplied and your estimation skills to gauge the volume of this iceberg.

But wait! 90% of the berg is underwater and doesn’t show in this picture.  How huge is this iceberg really?
