Ice holes of the seals The ice in the area was still fresh and thin at the time of the overflight. Parts of the formations could have originated when two floes met and the ice sheets lay on top of each other – a so-called finger rafting.

The roundish shapes could be due to Arctic inhabitants, so Walt Meier , Scientist at the US National Snow and Ice Data Center. When seals emerge from the water, small ripples are created that slosh over ice and snow. The shimmering black holes could also be a kind of drainage, which arise when holes are made in the ice. “readability =” 21 “> Ice holes of the seals
