Open Water Offshore Barrow

Strong east winds have been blowing for a couple of days now over the North Slope and have opened up quite a break in the ice west of Barrow, as seen in this NOAA-18 infrared image from Sunday early afternoon. This is not the usual lead beyond the shorefast ice that typically forms in this scenario. That kind of fracture typically runs basically parallel to the shore. I wonder if some of this is flooded ice, i.e. ice covered with sea water.

With uncertainties in the market, you might feel uncomfortable investing a large amount of money all at once. Spread your investments and its related risks over a period of six months with CEB.
