Frozen wave in antarctica. Stumbled upon on the interwebz, thought i'd share.. Sorry to burst your tits, boys and girls. But this isn't a frozen wave. It's the leading edge of an ice sheet, which is warped due to the friction between itsel fuck u

Sorry to burst your tits, boys and girls. But this isn't a frozen wave. It's the leading edge of an ice sheet, which is warped due to the friction between itself and the bottom sheet. Wind blows across the top, creating more of a curl. There is no naturally obtainable temperature anywhere on the surface of the earth that can overcome the molecular kinetic energy of a moving wave of water fast enough to freeze it solid mid-action.

pleaase explain frozen waterfalls then

Ice forms at the edges of the top of the waterfall, then gradually works its way in. The water flowing over it begins to freeze onto the part formed, and then eventually the entire thing gets covered in ice. It is a long process. Same principle as stalagmites & icicles.

No, because science thrives on crushed dreams.

No, this is a frozen wave.

Can't step up that.

Its not a frozen wave, its a big piece of ice that was eroded by the wind until it looked like a wave. Same thing happens to rocks.

mfw I'm wondering how such a thing is even possible.
