North Pole

NASA Operation IceBridge captured this view from 500 meters about the North Pole Taken on May 4th.

So what are you seeing? That's sea ice, with a few ridges and a bit of snow cover, and with a few small cracks, almost leads in the ice. Credit: NASA/Goddard/Operation IceBridge/Eric Fraim Larger image
