    Edit Photo Details Fascination for pancake sea ice   #ice #polar #spitsbergen #artic #sea #seaice #ocean #svalbard #pancake
    Last spring I did fieldwork in the Arctic fjords of Svalbard and got totally fascinated by all the different forms of sea ice. This was my favorite, named 'pancake sea ice'. Because the ocean is so much in motion all the time it is impossible to freeze a nice equal thin layer of ice. Therefore these pancakes form. Is there anything more fascinating than watching these pancakes dancing on the waves?

    Abstract. Fascinating, and a unique insight into the frozen waterscape of the Arctic. The patterns, the positive and negative space all occupied by water in different states, seeds an intriguing look at where we draw the line between form and formless. Beautiful!
