Caption: Wind-driven snow drifts across the Paulabreen glacier on Spitsbergen, the Norwegian island in the Svalbard Archipelago on the edge of the Arctic Ocean. Winds in polar regions whip up loose snow particles to form "drift" which, in severe cases, can obscure horizons & landmarks, reducing visibility to a few metres.
