Sea ice lead

A sea ice lead in the process of refreezing, about 100 miles to the west of Prince Patrick Island, near the end of our sea ice data line.  Several distinct ice types are visible at various points within the lead.  A fairly strong surface wind is blowing from right to left in this image, pushing the newly-formed ice and the floes of older ice to the downwind side of the lead.
