From the Bay shore two different sea ice forming mixed with submerged snow. After one week, the mainly from uncharacteristic 12 mm High Arctic rain near beach fresher water tasting sea ice, has not accreted a great deal, remained rubbery and broke easily:
One week old sea ice from mainly rainfall, is extremely fragile brakes on contact. Can't carry any significant weight, is rubbery, very much appearing like sea ice further North near North Pole.
It formed in much warmer temperatures.
Later today, temperatures warmed further and a lot of the grey ice seemed to have melted , there is an apparent thermal balance, where as, colder than -11 C surface air seems imperative for sea ice to form.WD October 4, 2016
