Because ice is less dense than water, it floats on the ocean's surface (as does fresh water ice, which has an even lower density).

Sea ice covers about 7% of the Earth's surface and about 12% of the world's oceans. Much of the world's sea ice is enclosed within the polar ice packs in the Earth's polar regions: the Arctic ice pack of the Arctic Ocean. The game is called ice flows, a subtle play on words with the term “ice floes”.

Confusingly, an ice floe is a section of sea ice. Sea ice is a different entity to glacial ice, being formed by frozen sea water. Sea ice tends to be a few metres thick, floating on the ocean, and comes and goes with the seasons, though some survives from one.

Ice Floes Flow Along. Ice floes are frozen masses of seawater (saltwater) that float on the surface of the sea. The term is applied to any relatively flat piece of sea ice that is free moving - unlike pack ice. The tracking of ice floes is important to both understanding critical environmental issues such as global warming, and to aid in Arctic navigation.
