    I too hate to be pedantic .. but I can't help it!

    According to Chambers : floe - a field of floating ice, so an ice-floe would be a field of floating ice made from ice?

    So I believe either floe or ice-flow but NOT ice-floe.

    HOWEVER a quick google of ice-flow, ice-floe, ice flow seems to show that all variants are in common usage. Lets say we are both correct.

    Collins has 'floe' see 'ice floe.' You're right about there being lots of Google entries for 'ice flow.' Thanks for the riddles, keep them coming. 🙂
