This is an Antarctic pressure ridge. My explanation may be a touch off since I'm trained in colour science rather than water science, but here it goes. Glaciers move super super slow, but they do indeed move. Sometimes they hit things, like islands, and, when they do, they essentially bounce back into themselves creating small interference patterns, or waves. As these collisions go on, the waves grow and, eventually, the curvature is too big for the crystalized structure of the ice to maintain so they shatter into formations like this.
The end.
Water scientists, get at me. How'd I do?

Cutting season? More like core cutting season 😉#geologyrocks

The past few years have seen the rapid development and availability of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV). Popularly called “drones,” they are remotely operated vehicles that can be fixedwing aircraft or helicopters. UAVs are being developed for use in everything from product delivery to farming. Especially popular are micro UAV helicopters, which are usually in the form of small aerial platforms that have four or more propellers. This configuration provides great maneuverability, stability, and control. Compared to commercial satellite photography or manned aircraft, drones capture much more detailed geophysical data and can also fly beneath clouds, so can be used in overcast weather. Ground surveys conducted on land tend to be limited by geographical obstacles and other terrestrial factors. Instead drones provide a stable, 360° aerial view, so the mapping of geological structures over large areas can be achieved quickly and precisely. Their ability to fly both low and slowly along a predetermined flight path, allows for high-resolution overlapping stereophotogrammetric photos to be taken, which can then be used to generate aerial maps and 3D models of the landscape using geological software. Furthermore, this data can be combined with other type of surveys for a complete analysis of the site. Shown is a geologist setting the drone and ready to take off.

Thanks for sharing Kenneth! ❤👍 City of Rocks gets its name from the amazing volcanic rock formations found here. The park is about one square mile of giant, wind molded boulders, nestled in the scenic Chihuahuan desert region of southeastern New Mexico. Some of the rock columns are 40 feet high, with paths resembling city streets winding between them. The rocks were deposited here almost 35 million years ago when the Emory caldera erupted at the southern end of the Black Range. Erosion, over millions of years, sculpted the columns and spires seen today, creating a stunning, surreal, alien landscape.

The Dillon Pinnacles, formed by mud flow, lava and volcanic explosions over 30 million years ago.

This black amethyst is out of this world 🌌 It looks like something from outer space. Does anyone know why black amethyst is usually in this druzy formation? #doitfortheGRAM

@citibank Wow travel moment getting to be part of fulfilling my mom's lifelong dream to see Uluru on an amazing trip around central Australia. We hiked and biked around the gorgeous giant rock and couldn't get enough of the beautiful sunsets. Next wow moment to Palau please! #30yearsofwow #contest

Planning what rivers to sample and how to get there is 70% of the work. Getting there is 25%, today for example involved sketchily downclimbing into this canyon. 5% of the work is actually collecting the sample. After taking notes, GPS data, measuring water temperature and pH, I use a drill to pump water through a filter and into bottles. This river is almost entirely glacial meltwater that has seeped through fissures in the volcano and re emerged to the surface as springs that converge into a stream. You can drink right out of it 🍻 but don't fall in! Just a quarter mile downstream is one of Iceland's highest waterfalls 🏔
