Shorefast Ice at Barrow

Here is the view from Barrow Saturday evening June 4th. The shorecast ice is holding, with meltwater on top. The dark line at the horizon in the upper left is the open water beyond the shorefast ice. Image from the UAF Sea Ice group.

  1. This webcam is soos interesting - one might think this is all straight forward but just viewing photos/time lapse of the ice shoves gives an idea of the power and impressiveness of what goes on. Nice comment on picking the open water in distance.
