Excellent pick Pickie! The "bergs" were just pieces of dry ice we had placed in the pressure cell. So in truth they were resting on the bottom of the cell and were simply bathed in liquid CO2. We were playing around trying to maintain the cell near the CO2 triple point. "afloat" was mere poetic license. Although, now that I think about it, "bathed" sounds just as good, and is more accurate :)
