The grey material is submerged ice, the dark material is water.
I have to disagree with you ... you're basically saying that what we're seeing is a layer of ice, with a layer of water on top of it, followed by
rocks on top of the water ... definitely a peculiar arrangement !
If that was to be solid ice, then what conditions would allow for the formation of liquid water with a layer of snow immediately adjacent to it ...
and both sitting on top of a layer of ice ? Irrespective, the dark area can't be liquid water because looking at the grey material that you say is
ice, it clearly has thickness of approx 5 metres and if you look closely, you can easily see that there's a section of dark area covering up part of
Incongrous to say the least, hmmmm ?
Look, Phage .... don't get me wrong or think I'm being disrespectful ... and I certainly agree we should ALL keep a healthy skepticism in accepting
what's presented to us in threads here on ATS ... but I've noticed a strong tendency on your part that if someone says "its light", you
immediately say "it's dark" or if someone says "its up", you immediately say "its down".
And the same with this latest image I've presented ... it's fairly obvious that whatever the dark material MAY be, an immediate "knee jerk
response" of "it's OBVIOUSLY water" is innapropriate as just a few secs of close examination shows a number of reasons (as I've just pointed out)
why a water based explanation doesn't fit the observed details.
Perhaps we could prevail on someone with genuine GEOLOGICAL knowledge and experience to make a considered statement regarding this anomaly.
