      Ivunik - Ice Watch Word of the Week 7

      The Ice Watch Word of the Week is: Ivunik.

      Ivunik is piled up ice and Ivujuk is the process of ice piling up. This often happens with moving ice piling up along the shore, or at the floe edge when the moving floe closes up against the land fast ice edge and creates pressure ridges of piled up ice.

      Sikuliaviniq - Ice Watch Word of the Week 5

      uploaded by: SIKU

      channel: SIKU

      Once sikuliaq freezes up enough so that it is thicker and no longer wavy, it is called sikuliaviniq or tuvaruaq. Using a harpoon, it can be walked on and when it gets thicker sometimes can support a skidoo.
