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:
