floating ice

Any form of ice found floating in water.

The principal kinds of floating ice are lake ice, river ice, sea ice that forms by the freezing of water at the surface, and glacier ice (ice of land origin) formed on land or in an ice shelf. The concept includes ice that is stranded or grounded.
