Canada: Video of a stream disappearing beneath the ice gone viral


Frazil ice, a rare occurrence, captured on camera in Squamish, Canada, as the temperature dropped. A stream appears to vanish before the eyes. In a video of the unusual phenomenon, as snow covers the area.

One Twitter user, Brad Atchison, tweeted, “An example of rarely seen Frazil Ice from Shannon Falls in Squamish, BC yesterday morning.” The stream vanishes in front of your eyes.”

Atchinson added, dismissing claims that this video was fake, “For my followers in here. I zoomed the original video a tiny bit. A very few people thought it was fake and just reversed. Absolutely not! I would never have posted it if it was.”

Here’s the link to the video:

According to Jessie Uppal, a meteorologist at The Weather Network. The strange scenario captured on camera is a rare occurrence that occurs. When water bodies are exposed to exceptionally cold temperatures.

“The air temperature surrounding these streams considerably below freezing and substantially colder in comparison to the water,” Uppal cited as saying by The Weather Network. These little bodies of water supercooled, which means their temperature falls below freezing yet they remain liquid.”

“This is where we start to see the formation of ice crystals on the surface of the water. These ice crystals are somewhat soft and have little structure to them. Since the flow of water is constant and turbulent. The soft ice crystals that do form are not able to completely freeze solid. With less turbulent streams, more ice is able to accumulate quicker, which created the illusion of a disappearing river.” he said.
