De regreso a la realidad

De regreso a la realidad (la cual tambien me gusta mucho y no me quejo cada lunes) pero feliz de haber hecho este viaje, pero sobre todo encantada con la compaia. Un viaje de mujeres lleno de risas, cansancio, sorpresas, poco de enojo, mucho respeto y paciencia. AMO QUE EL AMOR QUE NOS TENEMOS ESTE POR ARRIBA DE NUESTRAS DIFERENCIAS. Sin duda lo que mas voy a extraar son nuestras noches de casino. #alaska #celebritycruises #familia #amorincodicional #osos #orcas #glaciar #iceberg #casino #desveladas #apuestas

Polar tourists in their m

Polar tourists in their matching yellow jackets photograph a spectacular #iceberg that probably originated near Greenland and drifted all the way up to the North Pole. Our captain manoeuvred the world's most powerful nuclear #icebreaker in for a closer look. It was like an island or small mountain range. . . . . #northpole #canadagoose @canadagoose #adventure #50yearsofvictory #bucketlist #polar #polartravels #explore #explorer #wanderlust #travelphotography @quarkexpeditions @canonuk #igtravels #iceberg

, ! a . . --- #Jokulsarlon is an absolutely unique place, where you can see the Glacier tongue comes as long as to the ocean shore. And it was truly amazing to see the glacier being painted by the sunset! One of the best sunsets so far --- #travelinglife #travelphotography #exploringtheglobe #iceland #roadtripiceland #roadtrippin #mystopover #icelandair #everdayiceland #crazylazytrip #glacierlagoon #vatnajokull #iceberg #roamnation #ventureout #wondermore #jokulsarlonglacierlagoon #aroundiceland # #

Photo by @jenniferhayesig A mushroom shaped iceberg glistens in the sun drenched sea off Ilulissat Western Greenland. The name of the town literally means "iceberg" in Kalaallisut (a dialect of Greenlandic language). This iceberg was born in the the Ilulissat Icefjord, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the most active glaciers in the Northern Hemisphere. Greenland's icecap contains +10% of the worlds freshwater supply and is melting at unprecedented pace as temperatures continue to rise. Icebergs are temporary sculptures in the sea, I photographed this formation last week and as I swam away to photograph a tabular berg the mushroom shaped iceberg broke up and vanished.

An extract on #iceberg

Because the density of pure ice is about 920 kg/m3, and that of seawater about 1025 kg/m3, typically one-tenth of the volume of an iceberg is above water (due to Archimedes's Principle). The shape of the underwater portion can be difficult to judge by looking at the portion above the surface. This has led to the expression "tip of the iceberg", for a problem or difficulty that is only a small manifestation of a larger problem. Icebergs generally range from 1 to 75 metres (3.3 to 246.1 ft) above sea level and weigh 100,000 to 200,000 metric tons (110,000 to 220,000 short tons). The largest known iceberg in the North Atlantic was 168 metres (551 ft) above sea level, reported by the USCG icebreaker East Wind in 1958, making it the height of a 55-story building. These icebergs originate from the glaciers of western Greenland and may have an interior temperature of 15 to 20 C (5 to 4 F). Icebergs are usually confined by winds and currents to move close to the coast. The largest icebergs recorded have been calved, or broken off, from the Ross Ice Shelf of Antarctica. Iceberg B-15, photographed by satellite in 2000, measured 295 by 37 kilometres (183 by 23 mi), with a surface area of 11,000 square kilometres (4,200 sq mi). The largest iceberg on record was an Antarctic tabular iceberg of over 31,000 square kilometres (12,000 sq mi) [335 by 97 kilometres (208 by 60 mi)] sighted 150 miles (240 km) west of Scott Island, in the South Pacific Ocean, by the USS Glacier on November 12, 1956. This iceberg was larger than Belgium. When a piece of iceberg ice melts, a fizzing sound called the "Bergie Seltzer" is produced. This sound is made when the water-ice interface reaches compressed air bubbles trapped in the ice. As this happens, each bubble bursts, making a 'popping' sound. The bubbles contain air trapped in snow layers very early in the history of the ice, that eventually got buried to a given depth (up to several kilometers) and pressurized as it transformed into firn then to glacial ice.

About a month later, this iceberg split into two pieces upon crashing into Joe Island in the Nares Strait next to Greenland. In June 2011, large fragments of the Petermann Ice Islands were observed off the Labrador coast. Iceberg B-17B 140 km2 (54 sq mi), 1999, shipping alert issued December 2009.
