A picture taken of consolidated pack-ice.
The ice that you see is mainly pack-ice, last years ice that formed
elsewhere, broke up and floated here. As the temperature dropped,
then this ice became stuck together by fast-ice, sea-water frozen
in situ and attached to the coast that acts as a glue for the loose
bits of pack. The ice-bergs that you see have been frozen in position
and will remain son until they are freed by the spring break-up
of the surrounding sea-ice.
