When a piece of iceberg ice melts, it makes a fizzing sound called "Bergie Seltzer". This sound is made when the water-ice interface reaches compressed air bubbles trapped in the ice. As this happens, each bubble bursts, making a 'popping' sound. The bubbles contain air trapped in snow layers very early in the history of the ice, that eventually got buried to a given depth (up to several kilometers) and pressurized as it transformed into firn then to glacial ice.Created by: globalquiz.orgvery hard 35% a cracking noisea cracking noise4521a fizza fizz3473a roara roar733a whispera whisper973polar riddles » On which of the following lakes are icebreakers most extensively used?Lake Superior.
