Ice meanders in the Irminger Sea
Today’s Video of the Day from the European Space Agency features ice swirling in the Irminger Sea off the east coast of Greenland.
The sea ice is a typical site in the summertime, originating in the Arctic Ocean before moving southwards.
The marginal ice zone is the transition region from the open ocean to the white sea ice. This zone can consist of different amounts of ice floes depending on wind direction or waves and ocean currents.
