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 33% a cracking noisea cracking noise3732a fizza fizz2616a roara roar578a whispera whisper787ice riddles » Where is it NOT possible to find a penguin?In Iceland.
