Today’s Image of the Day comes courtesy of the NASA Earth Observatory and features a look at geometric ice formations on the Weddell Sea.
The unique shapes formed when two different floes of thin ice collided and blocks of ice slid above and below each other. The process is called “finger rafting” and typically resembles a zipper or interlocking fingers.
This image was captured by John Sonntag, a mission scientist for NASA’s Operation IceBridge.
