About the Northern Bering Sea: On Respect for Ice and Currents

Even if it’s complete fog, we’re told to go around, and I practiced it, go around an iceberg. One side of it will be darker than the other because the sun is up there someplace on the opposite side. That way you know which way to go towards the land. The ray of the sun that penetrates through the thick fog that you didn’t notice, is amplified by a big ice floe. On the opposite side of the sun, the ice floe is darker than the other.22 John Pingayak—Chevak
