Caption: Ice floes. Ice floes in the Arctic Ocean. These floes originated in the Arctic ice sheet. The sheet reaches its maximum size in winter. As the spring thaw progresses, the periphery of the ice sheet breaks up, and the resulting floes drift southwards. It is thought the wind plays the major role in dispersing the ice floes, rather than the tides.
