Another part of understanding something that we did nit know of, not explained at all in biblical terms of those interesting things Earth does.

'Brinicle' ice finger of death filmed in Antarctic

 

 

A bizarre underwater "icicle of death" has been filmed by a BBC crew.

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

The temperature of this sinking brine, which was well below 0C, caused the water to freeze in an icy sheath around it.

Where the so-called "brinicle" met the sea bed, a web of ice formed that froze everything it touched, including sea urchins and starfish.

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

This film looks very Lovecraftian. Poor starfish!
