Why is it darker blue the deeper it goes. Thats freakin cool

Copy/pasted from interweb

Blue ice occurs when snow falls on a glacier, is compressed, and becomes part of the glacier. During compression, air bubbles are squeezed out, so ice crystals enlarge. This enlargement is responsible for the ice's blue colour.

So, basically it has no air bubbles, just solid ice crystals

Edit: some updates since I've somehow become a subject matter expert after plagiarizing.wiki or something.

Blue light is also refracted (thanks to those replying)

I don't know how long this takes or how to replicate it. Maybe it's like making a diamond, pressure without crushing?

huh that makes sense. The air bubbles will scatter light due to the medium change from ice -> air -> ice.

Removing the air would make it a solid color. Water is blue

bigheadasian1998

Wait wut water is blue??

thefreshscent

121 points

9 days ago

The blueness in water is not caused by the scattering of light, which is responsible for the sky being blue. Rather, water blueness comes from the water molecules absorbing the red end of the spectrum of visible light. To be even more detailed, the absorption of light in water is due to the way the atoms vibrate and absorb different wavelengths of light.

ifyoulovesatan

67 points

It's also fairly rare for things to absorb red light only (and therefor appear blue) in nature. There are definitely blue things, sure, but they are often blue due to a different phenomena, which is microstructures on the surface of the thing which scatter light that isn't blue. One example is butterflies that are blue. They're not blue because they absorb light, but rather because they have very fine ridges on their wings that scatter non-blue light. Sapphires are, on the other hand, blue for the same reason water is.

You might think of blueberries as an example of something blue. And that would be fair enough, and these are indeed "blue" due to light absorption of red light. Specifically, they have a lot of so called "anthocyanins," a type of flavinoid pigment. There are many kinds of anthocyanins, and some impart a blue color while some impart red, or purple, or orange. Most blue flowers are blue because they contain anthocyanins.

However, most animals / feathers / etc are blue because of scattering.

It's verrrry slightly blue. That's why the ocean is blue - you're looking through enough water that you can see its colour.

Snow and clouds look white because of all the air inside them, which scatters light. Normal ice, if it's thick enough, will tint light going through it blue. Dense ice, which only forms under pressure, tints more obviously.

What happens when you add weight to something that is floating on the water? It sinks down a little bit. So as long as you keep adding weight it will keep sinking deeper while still being afloat, sometimes it flips over when the part above the water weighs less than what's beneath the water.

Not to be confused with airplane blue ice.

Blue ice, in the context of aviation, is frozen sewage material that has leaked mid-flight from commercial aircraft lavatory waste systems. It is a mixture of human biowaste and liquid disinfectant that freezes at high altitude.

Blue Ice is a solid block that even though quite similar to regular ice and packed ice is much more slippery than both of them. According to the Minecraft Wiki, this block is naturally generated at the bottom of icebergs, with the majority of the time this block is distributed in the middle of the icebergs.

Just googled it : Glacier ice is blue because the red (long wavelengths) part of white light is absorbed by ice and the blue (short wavelengths) light is transmitted and scattered. The longer the path light travels in ice, the more blue it appears.

coconut-telegraph

58 points

Yeah, that’s why water is blue in general. In this case though the answer is compression, which is why the deeper ice pack is bluer than the surface, all the air is squeezed out.

That doesn’t explain why one side of the glacier is light blue and the other side is dark blue? They’re illuminated at the same distance, so the bluer part must be much denser ?

ImAzura

Has to do with the amount of air trapped in the ice. Blue ice is older, has gone through a lot of compression, and the air that was trapped within it has been forced out. This dense ice scatters blue light better than ice with air in it, hence the colour.

Similar phenomenon with the air in our atmosphere which is pretty good at scattering blue light.

Water is very very slightly blue. The blue ice is extremely pure water, dense, thick and has no air in it. The air is what normally what gives ice it's white appearance.

The Norwegian Sognefjord has portions of it that reach 1300m. As a rule of thumb, the depth is about the same as the mountains to the sides, so consider that there can be an almost 3km difference between the highest peaks along the fjord and its seabed.

Yeah, I hate how bad this title is. For some reason, calling it rare footage also annoys me. Maybe footage of a rare event, but shits all over the internet now. It isn't rare footage anymore.

We can safely say it won't be rare much longer.

White ice is caused by air bubbles in the ice blue ice has no air bubbles because the air is squeezed out due to the immense pressure near the bottom of a glacier

I’m surprised that super rich people don’t pay some crazy amount of money for harvested blue ice cubes in their fancy cocktails
