What is Frazil Ice?

The phenomenon seen in the video of the stream at Shannon Falls is called Frazil Ice. It is not the water that freezes here in an instant, but the needle-shaped ice crystals that froze together. They arise at the cooler air temperature around the waterfall due to the mixing of air with water. If enough of them flow with the flow of water, they will pool and this can create a kind of jam. A chain reaction begins. Water flows under the surface of ice crystals. The surface looks icy.

Frozen ice is also formed in the oceans. This is the first stage of sea ice formation. Ice floats and then a closed ice cover emerges from it.
