Abstract:

In this final year of the program, investigators focused on questions of ice crystal morphological behavior under various conditions, such as when they fall or rise into a temperature regime which is inconsistent with their existing habit. The literature is unclear on this question most published results indicate that if the conditions change, the ice crystal will change its growth characteristics.
