According to the RDPL: Because the orange (long wavelengths) part of white light is absorbed by ice and the blue (short wavelengths) light is transmitted and scattered. The longer the path light travels in ice, the bluer it appears
The purity and age of the ice also play an important factor in the color of ice in glaciers. As the ice ages it is compressed, melted and frozen again eliminating air bubbles that scatter the light rays and bounce them back out in the same color they came in (white). Once the ice becomes pure the light waves are much more likely to be absorbed promoting the deep blue color.
Glaciers look blue because they are made of ice, which reflects the color of the sky.

Ice blue is a color that dominates Antarctica.
Blue: Sea. White: Ice(Glaciers). Red: Fire.
Today, ice glaciers are found on all continents of the world except Australia. Even Africa has ice glaciers on it.
they are ice blue
Frozen methane gas and ice gives it its color.
Yes it is a cool color, it is cool like an ice!!!
Antarctica scenery is like : high mountains and glaciers witch are blue and ice caps
valley glaciers are constrained by their surroundings. And ice sheets dont Ice sheets are large
Blue is a flavor ONLY in Ice/slush type beverages, or if it contains a large amount of dye. Otherwise, blue is a color.
Halley's comet is blue because, like most comets, it is composed of ice and rock. The ice gives the comet its blue color
Ice erosion most commonly occurs in glaciers. Glaciers are extremely efficient at eroding.
The Great Lakes were created by glaciers in the last ice age.
bécasse of thé ice.
glaciers are just lots of ice. when this ice melts it turns into H2O (water). so glaciers give us water to drink.
why do glaciers make water look mikly blue
call a massive chunls of ice that breaks away from glaciers
yes, ice cubes glaciers and snowballs are made of ice, which is water in its solid state
