At an excess vapor density (supersaturation of about 10−4) adjacent to the ice crystal surface of 5–6×10−10 g/cc, there is a transition between the highly faceted kinetic growth form and the rounded equilibrium form at temperatures above –6 °C. At lower temperatures there is a transition in the equilibrium form to hexagonal prisms because of a reduction in the disordered surface layer. The growth rate of ice crystals from the vapor is analyzed by a simple model which accounts for vapor flow and… CONTINUE READING
