Majestic Antarctic Images
« on: May 16, 2013, 11:24:38 PM »
A4R's postings in the "Weather" thread inspired me to open this new thread of majestic Antarctic images.  Feel free to post your favorite images and/or videos about the Antarctic; maybe they will inspire someone to try to preserve this natural wonder (and in the meantime save the world from a lot of sea level rise).

I like the three attached images of an Antarctic iceberg that has flipped upside-down to expose its keel ice, which is blue because this ice was formed under pressure so its ice crystal lattice has stretched O-H bond lengths resulting in the ice absorbing all other colors and reflecting the blue light:

Wonderful picture, blumenkraft.
It looks like it couldn't be created naturally.
It is too late just to be concerned about Climate Change

Sorry Sebastian, i don't know any detail about it. I found it on Reddit and as a location, only Antarctica was mentioned.

I believe the origin of the image is here:

Awesome Steve thanks so much!

No wonder the place is called Plenau Bay, eh? ;)

Melting of less compact ice in old crevasses when the mass was deeper in warm sea water?
Awesome photo by the way .

One image, maybe not so majestic considering colors.

Link: https://apps.sentinel-hub.com/eo-browser/?lat=-68.609&lng=-62.567&zoom=9&time=2019-08-27&preset=EW-DH-HV-DECIBEL-GAMMA0-ORTHORECTIFIED&datasource=Sentinel-1%20AWS%20(S1-AWS-EW-HHHV)


I could kiss you! I didn't even know EO-Browser shows the radar pics too.

Your link made me find Oden (i think). Check the Nares Strait thread.

PS: Awesome find! Can't like your post enough (only once).

At the most northern tip of the Antarctic peninsula.
