An "ice tongue" occurs
when a glacier flowing into the sea doesn't immediately break up into icebergs
but floats out into the sea (the most famous example being the Ross ice
shelf). The photo above shows a few miles of the
Drygalski ice tongue extending
from the David Glacier 50
miles into the Ross Sea.
The Trans Antarctic mountains can be seen in the
with the ice shelf stretching from right to left.
Note also how the tongue protects a stretch of sea to its north from freezing.
Who wouldn't want to go on a European vacation? Being able to travel all over Europe and stay in the beautiful
Amsterdam hotels, the hotels in Rome, or the hotels in Barcelona, can be a great experience.
