Would You Like Some Ice With That?

Friday, 10th March 2006 by

Just off the the coast of Newfoundland, Canada (not far from St. John's, the location of the oldest street in North America), there's a patch of high-res sea which has captured some truly incredible images of icebergs.

Zooming in further it seems that the 'icebergs' are made of hundreds of thousands of smaller chunks of ice, clinging together like massive swathes of frozen dust.

In fact, are these really icebergs at all? Perhaps they were, but have since disintegrated into billions of smaller pieces of ice. Are these darker shapes rivers of ice particles flowing under the surface of the ocean?

Thanks to Marc Armstrong and Peter.
