    Gold in Nature/Underwater

Massive and mysterious habitats Iceberg are dynamic kingdoms that support marine life. As they swing and rotate slowly through polar currents, icebergs fertilize the oceans. Carrying nutrients from the earth, they are responsible for life blooms by developing phytoplankton and in?uence the carbon cycle by sequestering carbon dioxide from the air. They also thus shelter big animal such as Crabeater seals that spend the entire year on the pack ice providing them food source, protection and a playground.
