The physics of premelted ice and its geophysical consequences
The surface of ice exhibits the swath of phase-transition phenomena common to all materials and as such it acts as an ideal test bed of both theory and experiment. It is readily available,
Self-preserving ice layers on CO2 clathrate particles: Implications for Enceladus, Pluto, and similar ocean worlds
Context. Gas hydrates can be stabilised outside their window of thermodynamic stability by the formation of an ice layer – a phenomenon termed self-preservation. This can lead to a positive buoyancy
The premelting of ice and its environmental consequences
Several mechanisms can extend the equilibrium domain of a liquid phase into the solid region of the normal phase diagram. The causes of premelting, which include surface melting, interface curvature
Temperature dependence of the Casimir force
The Casimir force—at first, a rather unexpected consequence of quantum electrodynamics—was discovered by Hendrik Casimir in Eindhoven in 1948. It predicts that two uncharged metal plates experience
Thermal Properties of the H2O–CO2–Na2CO3/CH3OH/NH3 Systems at Low Temperatures and Pressures up to 50 MPa

Role of zero point energy in promoting ice formation in a spherical drop of water
We demonstrate that the Lifshitz interaction energy (excluding the self-energies of the inner and outer spherical regions) for three concentric spherical dielectric media can be evaluated easily

It is found that electromagnetic interactions do not permit a liquid film of macroscopic thickness at the ice-vapor interface, Hence the surface melting of ice is at most incomplete and the thickness of the film which is permitted is surprisingly large, with retardation effects setting the scale.
Structure and fluctuations of the premelted liquid film of ice at the triple point
ABSTRACT In this paper, we study the structure of the ice/vapour interface in the neighbourhood of the triple point for the TIP4P/2005 model. We probe the fluctuations of the ice/film and film/vapour
Impurity Effects in the Premelting of Ice
The effect of impurities on the surface and interfacial melting of ice is investigated in the context of the Derjaguin-Landau-Verwey-Overbeek theory by calculating van der Waals and Coulombic
