--- Please note: After the event Twila realized that, in her great excitement about answering the question about blue glacier ice, she misspoke! She accidentally said that blue light is absorbed, when in fact it is reflected (longer wavelengths that produce red are absorbed). In normal snow, all wavelengths are scattered quickly. We hope this doesn't cause any confusion to viewers watching the event archive! ---
