Earth’s Icy Waters (WIBX) – Winter provides many beautiful sites to behold.

They are sometimes called “frost flowers,” although the term can also refer to semi-frozen botanicals caught in winter’s embrace, and “sea ice.”

Along with high concentrations of salt the crystals harbor sea life, algae, bacteria, and gases that can they emit into the atmosphere as they melt.

They are usually formed when the cold (usually arctic) air meets slightly warmer water and can be found anywhere on Earth where such temperature variations occur.
