Thanks! Have you noticed the interesting excursion the Antarctic freeze-up is taking?

Animation? The small NSIDC ice concentration image near the top of this item is not an animation and does not link to one...

Dark objects on ice sink can even when they are "lighter" than the ice and even if there is no snowfall at all. Mechanism is that sun warms the object, and the water drains away under it or evaporates away from the margins. The density difference doesn't matter much with a solid you are melting your way into.
It occurs to me that when you have a sea ice slush, adding snowfall could cause a quick surface freeze by changing the concentration of salt at the surface.
