The amazing sound of a frozen sea.

Each summer thousands of tourists and locals flock to the Ukraine's Arcadia beach, one of the most popular in eastern Europe, and listen to the waves lap peacefully against the shore. But this winter as the temperatures drop below -20 degrees Celsius the sea there is making a very different sound.

... the ice and rocks are rubbing against each other to create an alien soundscape of bizarre squeaks,

It's amazing just how alien an environment on Earth can sound. I've never heard something like this before ... it'd a really scary sound if I didn't know what it was, but I'd really like to be there and here it in person.

Let's not forget the fact that The Black Sea hasn't been frozen over in a long time too!

Anyway, click the link and check out the video

Yeah it redirects my mobile device too, sorry man. But as soon as you get your hands on a desktop computer, check it out! It's worth it.

That's crazy - I have never even thought of hearing an ice sea moving,

I know I like the sound of blocks of snow thumping, or snowballs.

It makes me wonder of the kind of sounds we might hear (not us personally) on Europa and beyond.

Sounds of the Solar System

Wow, strange sound. If it wasn't all white out there I'd think the triffids were coming.

I usually go to the local lake when it freezes over. I expected to hear sounds like that but not in the slightest. Very interesting. Must be because of the current under the water.

At the local lake, sometimes the ice makes huge crashing sounds all of a sudden, and I bore witness to an ice quake last month when the thin ice shook the whole ground and crushed into the current that goes through the center of the lake. It was quite a sight to behold.

But that sound the sea is making... that would drive me crazy after awhile.
