With timelapse cameras, specialists recorded salt water being excluded from the sea ice and sinking.

The unusual phenomenon was filmed for the first time by cameramen Hugh Miller and Doug Anderson for the BBC One series Frozen Planet.


Thats pretty cool....


The icy phenomenon is caused by cold, sinking brine, which is more dense than the rest of the sea water. It forms a brinicle as it contacts warmer water below the surface.



Check out the video here,

Enjoy.

Salinity differential is fun! I show clips of this entire series to my chemistry and biology students and they love it. Thanks for posting this link its always fun to watch science in motion.

This series is fantastic, anyone who isn't watching it - SHOULD. This world is so unbelievably diverse, oh and its narrated by the fantastic Sir David Attenbough! Widelife programmes wont be the same when he isn't here anymore...

There's no way Sir Attenborough would allow CGI to taint to the wonders that he documents.

As stated above it'll be a sad day for these types of documentaries when he's no longer around, most of the documentaries he's been in and narrated are nothing short of hypnotic.

Yes.
Great stuff! I love Attenborough too, the man has a real knack for finding nature's most mysterious animals and phenomenon.
And his voice!

The series is indeed fantastic.
Whilst consistently producing programmes of such high quality who can complain about the licence fee, it's all the other mindless drivel that's worrying.

The ten minutes or so at the end of each episode showing how certain shots were taken really show how difficult it must have been to produce the series - exceptionally entertaining, informative, thought provoking and simply magnificent.

The sections on Emperor penguins returning to Antarctica, killer whales coming up for air and attacking a seal, beluga whales scraping themselves and grown adult male polar bears fun fighting were truly breath taking.

when this finger moves to the ground, is it fast motion, time laps or something ? if you look closely, it really looks artificial to me. i would like it to be real, i am fascinated, but it kind of shakes horizontal a tiny bit, like in animations.

It is timelapse yes. If you read the second sentance in the article you would of known that

Also as others have said, it's very doubtful they would use CGI in one of David Attenborough's nature programmes. It's all Timelapse. Using CGI would be sacrilege

Wow. Forget the brinicle, I've never seen starfish move like that. Like an episode of SpongeBob Squarepants for real.

Are you for real? You honestly think that?
What are you 12 y/o?

Its time lapse and if you read the article you would also see at the bottom of the page, they show a picture of all the camera work that had to be done to get the amazing shots.

Geez...stupidity runs rampant in these parts.

it looks fake to me, my opinion. are you trying to troll, because your life is not very successful ? if you look for scapegoat, look in the mirror or check your spirituality for demons.



Im VERY successful buddy, and I'm demon free.
Sorry for jumpin on ya its just I've seen many of your posts and the vast majority of them look to be made from a child without much commen sense or wanting to become educated on the subject to which you are commenting, IMO. What are you talkin about scapegoats for? No trollin here just making observations.


Have you seen many time lapsed videos? The OP video looks like it jumps around because one small movement in a timelapse film will make it seem very drastic when played in real time.

amazing video. I think I have been playing too much skyrim because that totally reminded me of the ice spells that you can cast.

Go to 1:50 for a brief demo
