Sea ice, the frozen surface of the ocean, takes many forms. Initially grease and frazil ice, it coalesces into pancakes, then grows to become floes, and brash ice, intersected with leads and occasional polynyas. Icebergs of all sizes contribute to its mass. Its many forms and patterns have fascinated Hedgehog HOuse photographers. In winter the total amount of sea ice effectively doubles the size of the continent.
