Antarctica Dogs - Huskies - Melting Spring Ice

Back to gallery    Back to thumbnails    Next    Previous

Melting spring sea ice gives some pretty unpleasant travelling conditions.

The ice is still very thick and safe, but warmer days cause the snow and ice on the surface to start melting giving large melt pools. The good news is that the ice surface beneath the shallow water is usually very smooth, the bad news is that the water is icy cold and splashes up as you travel through it.
