Atmospheric Ice Crystals over the Antarctic Plateau in Winter

  title={Atmospheric Ice Crystals over the Antarctic Plateau in Winter},
  author={Von Walden and Stephen G Warren and E J Tuttle}
Falling ice crystals were collected daily on a gridded glass slide at South Pole Station, Antarctica, during the Antarctic winter of 1992 and were photographed through a microscope. Nine types of ice crystals are identified, which fall into three main categories: ‘‘diamond dust,’’ blowing snow, and snow grains. The dimensions of about 20 000 crystals were measured on scanned images of the photomicrographs. The predominant crystal types are hexagonal columns and plates (diamond dust) and rounded… CONTINUE READING
