Incredible! Antarctica Icebergs


Blue stripes are often created when a crevice in the ice sheet
fills up with melted water and freezes so quickly that no bubbles form.

When an iceberg falls into the sea, a layer of salty seawater can
freeze to the underside. If this is rich in algae, it can form a
green stripe.

Brown, black and yellow lines are caused by sediment, picked up

when the ice sheet grinds downhill towards the sea.


















... Is this amazing??


Nature is amazing!

The water froze the instant the wave broke through the
ice. That's what it is like in Antarctica where it is the
coldest weather in decades. Water freezes the instant
it comes in contact with the air. The temperature of the
water is already some degrees below freezing.

Just look at how the wave froze in mid-air!!!
















Having the Internet means that we get to see something

that we never imagined! Pass it on for others to enjoy!
