Good one. I thought there might've been some kind of trick, but saw that it was a Science teaser so opted to go for the iceberg theory. I didn't add the stove part. Good teaser.

It would help if he also had a pot to melt the ice in as well as something to light the shovel with and maybe a raft or boat to float on.

Quite obvious, though.

electronjohn, I don't think he would need a boat. The middle of the Arctic Ocean is near the North Pole, and if my memory serves me correctly that area is covered with a very thick layer of ice.

There are no icebergs in the middle of the arctic ocean, just a huge sheet of thick ice. So he had plenty of water. And food. But he froze to death.
