Scott Base Pressure Ridges

Last Sunday we went on a tour of the pressure ridges at Scott Base, the New Zealand base 3 kilometers away. It was a sunny warm day, by warm I'm saying upper 30's to low 40's. The pressure ridges are formed by the Ross Ice Shelf meeting the ice of the Ross Sea. It's sort of like plate tecktonics and the results are beautiful. Check out the pictures and see for yourself.
