Title: Breaking Ice in the Arctic
Do you want to know what it sounds like to break ice in the Arctic Ocean? This audio file is of the U.S. Coast Guard Cutter Healy doing exactly that. This recording was taken outside on the ship's bow, so you can hear the ice breaking on the ship and the wind in the background. We can hear similar sounds in the messdeck, gym, and other places throughout the ship including my room, where it often wakes me from my sleep.
