Description: What's the difference between sea ice and an iceberg? This is a chunk of sea ice that resembles an iceberg. Icebergs are usually chunks of ice that fall off a glacier into the ocean. Sea ice forms directly in the ocean. In this picture, you can really see what the saying about the "tip of the iceberg" really means. The white part is what is above water and you can see that there is so much more of it below the water, the light blue parts.

Description: This is a picture of a Dall’s porpoise (Phocoenoides dalli). One of them briefly jumped out of the water so we could see its shape and coloring to make a positive identification. For the most part, we only saw their “blows” (water they blow out of their blowholes). Picture credit: National Center for Ecological Analysis and Synthesis, University of California - Santa Barbara
