Pancake Ice Forming in Scoresbysund

Pancake Ice Forming in Scoresbysund

Pancake ice starts to form in Scoresbysund, Greenland. The sea water starts to freeze at about -1C, forming crystals which naturally spin and join together with other crystals as the water moves - these larger crystals start to grow and spin into circles, which then eventually meet other circles and start to form crusted ice, which layers up into pack ice.
