Amazing Ice Crystals Formed on Thin Sea Ice

These spiky ice crystals are called frazil! Ice forms needle-like crystals when turbulent ocean water freezes. These ice crystals form in winter if the temperatures suddenly plunge. However, frazil ice doesn’t float for long, as they are doing here. They can sink very easily and adhere to structures in the water, blocking water flow.

They can be a nightmare for those managing water bodies, but for the rest of us, these needle-like ice crystal clusters just look super cool!
