Striped Icebergs

Typically when I get an email forwarded my way, the first thing I do is press the Delete button. I hate forwards, but, the images below caught my eye and I thought were worth a second look. Makes me want to charter a long boat and just head south. Copy from forwarded email reads:

“Icebergs in the Antarctic area sometimes have stripes, formed by layers of snow that react to different conditions. Blue stripes are often created when a crevice in the ice sheet fills up with melt water and freezes so quickly that no bubbles form. When an iceberg falls into the sea, a layer of salty seawater can freeze to the underside. If this is rich in algae, it can form a green stripe. Brown, black and yellow lines are caused by sediment, picked up when the ice sheet grinds downhill towards the sea.”
