How is it formed?</strong></h3><p style=";text-align:left;direction:ltr"> This huge ice volcano appeared this winter in southeast Kazakhstan, where ice rose in the form of a hollow cone, from which bursts a spray of spring water that freezes in the form of small ice crystals that fall back onto the bright white cone.</p><p style=";text-align:left;direction:ltr"></p><p style=";text-align:left;direction:ltr"> The ice structure is located at the top of a hot spring, which sprays water from the summit like an exploding volcano, but in reality it is not like volcanoes that spew lava, ash, and gases, except that the accumulation of hot spring water that freezes quickly in cold weather and formed a structure of ice has reached an amazing height It reached about 14 meters, so the ice tower is sometimes called an ice volcano. </p><p style=";text-align:left;direction:ltr"></p><p style=";text-align:left;direction:ltr"><iframe allow="accelerometer; autoplay; clipboard-write; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture" allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/l2girdpgnNw" width="560"></iframe></p><p style=";text-align:left;direction:ltr"></p><h3 style=";text-align:left;direction:ltr"> <strong>Other glacial volcanoes</strong></h3><p style=";text-align:left;direction:ltr"> The term &quot;ice volcano&quot; is usually given to similar ice structures that can appear around the edges of large bodies of water, such as lakes, and not just from hot springs like those in Kazakhstan, that form in freezing temperatures when waves create enough pressure to break down surface ice along The shoreline and forcing the water to flow, then freeze the water to form a conical structure.</p><p style=";text-align:left;direction:ltr"></p><p style=";text-align:left;direction:ltr"> Glaciers formed along the edge of Lake Michigan in the United States last February when wind conditions were ideal for pushing water waves under the shoreline ice, but it takes these conditions to continue over a period of time for these wonderful ice formations to develop. </p><p style=";text-align:left;direction:ltr"><img alt="" src="/sites/default/files/uploads-2020/ice-volcano2.jpg" style="width: 680px; height: 510px;" /></p><p style=";text-align:left;direction:ltr"></p>
