  • The presence of liquid water in frozen media impacts the strength of soils, the growth of frost heave, plant life and microbial activities, or the durability of infrastructures in cold regions. If the effect of confinement on freezing is well known, water is never pure and solutes depressing the freezing point are naturally found. Moreover, the combination of confinement and solute is poorly understood. We imaged the freezing dynamics of water in a model porous medium with various salt (KCl… CONTINUE READING
