well, you really want floating icebergs? Image

my 2c, those near coastline are standstill, so you use new tiles for that.

one huge ones need 3d model.

and flat ones use sea-level cloud system. Image

It seems Oceanic Icebergs are smoother, and cleaner, and typically a bluey/white colour... While Glacial Icebergs are more Jaged (i suppose from not being in the sea) and look much dirtier... grey/brown and white...
