[Watch] Brinicle: Icicle Of Death


One of the vast and overwhelming subject is Ocean.  Sailors experience and witness enormous mysteries under the water, all around the world.  Experts have analysed the top 10 uncovered phenomena.  One among the Ocean phenomena is Brinicle.

A brinicle resembles a pipe of ice reaching down from the underside of a layer of sea ice.  When a flow of extremely cold, saline water comes in contact with Ocean water, this brinicle is formed below the sea ice.

Watch the formation of Brinicle and see what happens when starfish comes in contact with the brinicle.


  • The brinicle is a very subtle structure with thin walls.
  • The growth of this phenomenon depends on the constant flow of cold salt/sea water.
  • The brinicle is very harmful to the organisms in the Ocean.  Starfish or even algae become a frozen solid when it comes in contact with brinicle.
  • The brinicle is created in low temperature – usually North and South Poles.
