I thought it would be nice to have a thread where people can share newly gained knowledge.

If you have learned something new that others in the forum might not know yet, please share it with us.

This thread is, of course, sea ice related, but in a very brought manner.

TIL about Candle Ice.

Quote
Candle ice is a form of rotten ice that develops in columns perpendicular to the surface of a lake. It makes a clinking sound when the "candles" are broken apart and floating in the water, bumping up against each other.
