Amazing Icebergs

Jul - 28 - 2011

Icebergs – a block of ice split off from the ice sheets and ice shelves. Most of the icebergs formed by cleavage. Age of icebergs may reach hundreds of thousands of years. Some icebergs are formed due to solid precipitation that falls for years to come and lie on the surface of snow crystals billion, which, like a mirror to reflect sunlight. Others are formed from frozen water. In the thickness of ice contains a lot of air bubbles. Beautiful blue stripes that decorate the surface of some of the icebergs, are the result of re-freezing of melt water, which has already filled all of the old fracture of the iceberg. The icy surface absorbs sunlight, reflecting the blue waves. Magnificent blue icebergs change the color saturation and hue depending on the angle of the sun.

Blue Iceberg and Adelie penguins. This iceberg is made up of blue ice, indicating that he broke from deep and ancient parts of the ice cap of Antarctica. This photo was taken in the northern part of the Weddell Sea in the Southern Ocean near Antarctica during the expedition ANT-VIII / 3, from the deck of the German research vessel «POLARSTERN».

Iceberg, located near the Cape York Peninsula, Greenland. All icebergs are beautiful in their own way and convey the incredible variety of forms. Opening of the iceberg, depicted in the photo, was formed as a result of the impact of the environment – wind, thawing and washing by the sea waves. (Mila Zinkova)
