NASA has published fascinating photographs of a rectangular g ice floes in the Weddell Sea off Antarctica. The images were taken as part of "Operation IceBridge". This is one of the longest-running studies evaluating changes in polar caps from an aerial view. Unusual g ice hand floating in the middle of the d sea ice was spotted last week by Jeremy Harbeck, a scientist at NASA.
The clear, almost perfectly straight edges of the ice show that the g The ice ra is relatively fresh and must have recently broken away from the ice p icebergs – NASA researchers estimated. This is indicated by sharp edges, which re not yet smoothed out by ocean waves.
Although the rectangular g The ice floes look as if they were cut with a knife from a larger section of the glacier, such g icebergs are called g ith a tablespoon of. These objects are the result of they’re gripped by long, flat surfaces, vertical walls and sharp edges. They can be several kilometers long and reach deep below the water’s surface. The largest g This type of ice floe was 11,000 kilometers long square.
Table g ice floes are not new, but the one photographed near the Larsen C glacier, the same one from which Last year, one of the largest documented g r ice – A68, it has the shape of an almost perfect rectangle.
– This was quite interesting. I often see g ice floes with relatively straight edges, but one with two corners at nearly right angles has never been seen before – Harbeck admitted and added that actually on the g and they stumbled upon it by accident. – I was more interested in capturing the g of the A68 ice shelf, over which r we intended to fly through, but I thought this rectangular g ice ra was visually interesting and quite photogenic, so I took some pictures – explained the researcher.
