ABERDEEN, Scotland (CBS) -- Foam whipped in from the North Sea covered the sea front area of Aberdeen in a layer of white on Sunday (September 25).
The phenomenon, reminiscent of a blanket of snow, was caused by a high volume of wave activity mixing together water, air and organic material, according to a marine ecologist.
Buildings, cars and houses in the Footdee area of the Scottish city were coated in the substance.
Heavy rain and winds of up to 70 mph caused travel disruption in Scotland on Tuesday, with fallen trees blocking some roads. The stormy weather has resulted in ferries being cancelled and delays to rail services.
