Photo: Aerial Photo Arctic Ice Floe

An interesting aerial view of the ice on the Gulf of St Lawrence in Canada, which has formed on the salt water in arctic conditions.

Flying above the arctic ice floes of the Gulf of St Lawrence in Canada's Altantic Region you can clearly see many interesting ice formations. When salt water freezes, it begins as small needles of ice forming over the surface which incorporates the water but not the salt.

As the freezing continues the ice crystals come together and then stick, which traps the salty brine in pockets and this forms a frozen slush to begin with. You can see some slush in this picture around one of the holes in the ice.
