On the stickiness of CO$_{2}$ and H$_{2}$O ice particles

  title={On the stickiness of CO\$\_\{2\}\$ and H\$\_\{2\}\$O ice particles},
  author={Sota Arakawa and Sebastiaan Krijt},
Laboratory experiments revealed that CO2 ice particles stick less efficiently than H2O ice particles, and there is an order of magnitude difference in the threshold velocity for sticking. However, the surface energies and elastic moduli of CO2 and H2O ices are comparable, and the reason why CO2 ice particles were poorly sticky compared to H2O ice particles was unclear. Here we investigate the effects of viscoelastic dissipation on the threshold velocity for sticking of ice particles using the…

Formation of Comets
Questions regarding how primordial or pristine the comets of the solar system are have been an ongoing controversy. In this review, we describe comets’ physical evolution from dust and ice grains in
