Fog Bow Above Fractured Sea Ice, Arctic Ocean, Near 81 Degrees North

Fog Bow Above Fractured Sea Ice, Arctic Ocean, Near 81 Degrees North

A fog bow arches across the Arctic Ocean, above fractured and melting floes of sea ice. Sunlight shining on disappearing fog created the optical phenomenon. There was only thin and scattered sea ice in this region of the Arctic Ocean north of the Svalbard Archipelago in late July, at a location near 81 degrees North -- far less ice than has covered the region historically. Climate change is rapidly shrinking the sea ice in this area and other regions of the Arctic.
