12 unbelievable phenomena: our world still can surprise us

Nature is magical and unpredictable...We gathered the most exciting nature phenomena for you!

#12 Brinicle - ice finger of death

This phenomenon appears in the Arctic under-ice waters due to different temperatures of the freezing point of water with different salinity. It looks like unexpected increased icicles which reach the bottom and turn into an ice stream. Marine animals, met on its way, quickly freeze.

The idea of the existence of Brinicle was first proposed in 1974, but was proven only in 2011. BBC operators accidentally filmed a video of this phenomenon and today it is the only video of Brinicle.

Thanks for the Amazing photos and info. Our world is truly a wonderful place. I learned a lot from your article. I had heard of the brinicle as David Attenborough talked about it in one of his planet earth series which I would highly recommend. Bonnie
