Bubbles In The Glacier Ice
923 wordsWhat is an iceberg? Why are they blue or green? An iceberg is a large floating block of freshwater ice that has broken off the edge of a glacier and been carried out to sea; about 90% of its mass lies under the water. The bluish streaks of clear, bubble free ice often seen in icebergs results from the refreezing of melt water which fills crevasses formed in the glacier as it creeps over land. The ice is blue because of the natural light scattering characteristics of pure ice. Occasionally airbor...

870 wordsBlank 1 Blank ity BlankBlankity Blank Mr. Blank 4/9/02 Effects of Salts on the Freezing Point of Water In this experiment, you will study the effect that several solutes have on the Freezing Point of water. When a solute is dissolved in a liquid, the temperature at which that liquid freezes decreases, because the molecules of the solute become attached to the water molecules, making it more difficult for the water to form its crystalline shape and form into ice. This process is called Freezing P...
945 wordsAs many people hear the word glacier they immediately think about the Titanic and how it sank because it ran into a glacier. What many people do not know is the history of glaciers. There are a couple different types of glaciers, for instance the type that the titanic ran into is a Tidewater glacier, which is a glacier that flows in the sea. There are also alpine glaciers which are glaciers that are found in the mountains, and there are Continental glaciers which are associated with the ice ages...
500 Cubic Miles Of Water
1,094 wordsThe Channeled Scablands of Eastern Washington As we enter Washington from the east, we immediately run into the gentle rolling hills of the Palouse country. If we continue to travel westward, we suddenly enter a heavily scarred land of barren rock, channels and canyons. Rugged cliffs, basalt rock basins, concave cliffs and even giant ripple marks line the landscape. We have just reached the edges of the Channeled Scablands of Eastern Washington. The bleak but intensely unique landscape causes us...
500 Feet Of Ice
725 wordsDuring my journey to Iceland, I have seen a natural event that made that journey very important to me. In southeastern Iceland, some 4,500 feet above sea level, lies Vatnajokull -- the largest temperate-zone ice cap in Europe. Vatnajokull, 3,200 frozen square miles overlying Iceland's most active volcanic region, sits, as does the rest of the island, above a mantle plume -- a column of hot rock that rises from the depths of Earth and feeds volcanoes with lava. Although it is paradoxical that Ice...
End Of A Glacier Ice Moves
1,318 wordsContinental Glaciers The Action of Ice on Land As glaciers become extremely large, they eventually reach the lowlands, which is essentially more gentle terrain. As these huge glaciers reach the lowlands, they travel much more slowly, because they no longer have the steep mount ian sides to push the ice down faster. Once on the lowlands, the glacier spreads out for they are no longer restricted by valleys, and become known as Ice Sheets. As long more snow falls than ice melts, Ice Sheets will con...
Ice Cube Dilemma Regular Soda
742 wordsLab Report Purpose of Experiment We are conducting this experiment to determine if; ice melts faster in regular soda or diet soda, ice melts faster in regular soda or water, ice melts faster in sugar solution or water or ice melts faster in salt solution (Mg SO 4) or water. Description of Experiment Different solutions of water, regular soda, diet soda, sugar solution and salt solution will be placed in beakers, weighed and acclimated to room temperature. Water will be used as the control. A col...
Glaciers In Specific The Ice Age Glaciers
1,849 wordsLake Michigan, Superior, Erie, Ontario and Huron; these five lakes located in North America make up the largest fresh water surface in the world. Each one around for several thousands of years, provides an important function to the Earth's eco system. What many might not know, each of these major lakes were formed from a glacier in what is called the Wisconsin an glaciation period. Glaciers are the starting point of many other recognizable landscape functions, such as mountains ranges, valleys a...
