    It depends on the salinity of the water and the density of the iceberg, among other factors. Wikipedia says 1/9th of the volume of the iceberg would be visible, but it is almost impossible to tell. You would need the full dimensions of the visible portion of the iceberg to estimate the iceberg's full size.

    a rough estimate would be that it shall be 80% submerged and 20% visible. so if 70 meters is visible then its actual height would be greater than 500 meters
