  1. Is that ice blue? It looks so cool, yet I feel like I should be worried that it’s melting.

    Where is that?

    Glacier ice is generally bluer, due to density. It most certainly is melting in the water there.

    It’s ice that’s calved off the Aialik Glacier near Seward, Alaska. Calving is normal, warming or no. It breaks off when the glacier moves into the sea.

    So cool. We never got to see calving the whole 2 weeks we were there. Heard it, saw small pieces in the water but never actually saw the fall.
