Ice Varieties along the Antarctic Coast: The land and sea along Antarctica’s Mawson Coast offers a study in ice forms.

The end of December marks the end of spring and beginning of summer along the coast of East Antarctica. The Sun shines most (if not all) of the time, yet ice still dominates the land and sea. That ice, however, is far from uniform. Varied forms of ice appear in these images from the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA’s Aqua satellite and the Advanced Land Imager (ALI) on NASA’s Earth Observing-1 (EO-1) satellite. These natural-color images both show parts of the Mawson Coast, where an Australian-led research station is located. The MODIS image (from December 16, 2011) offers a wide-area view and the ALI image (December 30) gives a close-up centered around the research station. Along the ice-encrusted coastline floats a broad band of fast ice, which derives its name from the fact that it holds fast to the shore. This thick ice is lighter in color ...
