Foça, Turkey

Caption: It was unusually cold this night. Temperatures rarely drop to -6°C in the Mediterranean Climate. And it happened last night. The field was full of these in the morning. I don't know exactly how this happens, can anyone explain?

I studied soil science in college. My best guess is that water, which is present in the voids of the soil, expands as it freezes and gets pushed through small pores.

Very interesting. I have never seen this. Do you have any pictures of these things on the ground?
