Experimental studies have been made of the aggregation of ice crystals of mean diameter about 5 μm upon an ice sphere of diameter 0.2 cm at the same temperature. The growth rate was found to be roughly independent of temperature over the range − 7°C to − 27°C and increased with electric field strength E to exceed the field-free value by about 15 per cent, 40 per cent and 80 per cent in fields of 500, 1,000 and 1,500 V cm−1 respectively. At higher values of E the growth-rate was reduced because… CONTINUE READING
