Birth Of A Shooter

Uploaded by: bananabender

Saturday August 17, 2013


Caption: A "shooter" iceberg breaks off from the glacier underwater and floats to the surface without the shocks of calving, so will produce a big iceberg. The lighter has has more air; as more snow falls on top of the ice, it packs down and squeezes out the air to produce the clear dark blue ice

Incredible series, thank you so much for posting all. I got to go to Alaska for first time this June. Saw a small fragment break from Portage Glacier and heard the "shot", nothing like this though. So beautiful!
