Surf’s Up in The Antarctic

Check out these cool waves…or are they?  A friend of mine discovered these photos, but I wasn’t sure how they were really formed. So, I did some research and this is what I LEARNED!!

I also found a great NASA website that has experiments and information all about the subject of sea ice, salt water, freezing points, and most importantly, why changes in sea ice effects the climate globally.  As always, CHECK IT OUT!!
