A web of ice that freezes everything it touches, including sea urchins and starfish.
“With timelapse cameras, specialists recorded salt water being excluded from the sea ice and sinking,” says this BBC article.
Note: The BBC has blocked the showing of this video.
However, you can still view it here:
“The temperature of this sinking brine, which was well below 0C, caused the water to freeze in an icy sheath around it.
“Where the so-called “brinicle” met the sea bed, a web of ice formed that froze everything it touched, including sea urchins and starfish.”
Have you ever noticed how much better nature seems to fare under warm conditions than freezing? Makes you wonder why we’re so fanatically hell-bent against “global warming.”
