Frozen Waters on Lake Michigan

Monday, February 21, 2011

This was sent to me in email by a dear Canadian friend. It is astounding.

ICEBERG PICTURES FROM LAKE MICHIGAN Amazing striped icebergs

Icebergs in Lake Michigan sometimes have stripes, formed by layers of snow that react to different conditions.

Blue stripes are often created when a crevice in the ice sheet fills up with melt water and freezes so quickly that no bubbles form.

When an iceberg falls into the lake, a layer of water can freeze to the underside. If this is rich in algae, it can form a green stripe.

Brown, black and yellow lines are caused by sediment, picked up when the ice sheet grinds downhill towards the lake.







Frozen Wave Pics - Nature is amazing!

The water froze the instant the wave broke through the ice. That's what it is like in Lake Michigan where it is the coldest weather in decades. Water freezes the instant it comes in contact with the air. The temperature of the water is already some degrees below freezing.

Just look at how the wave froze in mid-air!

    I never heard of bergs in Lake Michigan before! In Lake Ontario, we used to get slushy "ice" but it didn't freeze over.

Other lakes would freeze and then pressure heaves were dangerous for the snowmobilers.

I've seen broken off ice bergs in the Atlantic coast north of Newfoundland. The smaller pieces are locally known as Bergie Bits. Gorgeous and scary!
