NOAA Photo Library Image - expl1914

Photos taken underneath the ice surface show both the complexity of the ice structure as well as the stunning shades of blue. When ice floes push together, they form pressure ridges that are visible both above and below the surface forming a complex habitat that supports an abundant and diverse assemblage of organisms.
