In a protoplanetary disk, the inner edge of the region where the temperature falls below the condensation temperature of water is referred to as the snow line. Outside the snow line, water ice increases the surface density of solids by a factor of 4. The mass of the fastest growing planetesimal (the isolation mass) scales as the surface density to the 3/2 power. It is thought that ice-enhanced surface densities are required to make the cores of the gas giants (Jupiter and Saturn) before the… Expand
