Description

The Ice Watch Word of the Week is Sikuliaq (Sikuliak, Hikuliaq, Hikulihaaq).

Sikuliaq, or young ice, forms as sikuaq freezes up and gets thicker and harder. It no longer looks grey and can have some snow on top. It can be strong enough to support some animals but not always thick enough to support a person walking on it.
