Wow, that's amazing.

Thanks for sharing this fascinating idea! 2073 cubic meters is quite big. I wonder how long this process would take to form a single ice block.๐Ÿ˜Š

Jamila Yes, that is huge. With accelerated freezing, it might be done quicker than we think. Moreover, this will be a perpetual process. The submarine will keep on making the ice hexagons initially with a pace that helps recover the melted ice. The pace can then be reduced just to maintain an optimum amount of ice cover in the region. Since this is a standardized process, I think we may even use unmanned submarines that are controlled remotely. The process can then go on with minimum downtime.

Solidify the water underneath the glacier
