Scientists and explorers will shortly set off on an expedition aiming to discover how Arctic sea ice melts. This year's Catlin Arctic Survey is focused on the thin layer of water immediately under the floating ice. Arctic ice is melting faster in the summer than many computer models have predicted. Survey data could improve forecasts of the region's future, and show how likely it is that the flow of warm water in the North Atlantic will switch off. This would bring colder weather to the...

A NASA analysis of satellite data has quantified, for the first time, the amount of older and thicker "multiyear" sea ice lost from the Arctic Ocean due to melting. Since the start of the satellite record in 1979, scientists have observed the continued disappearance of older "multiyear" sea ice that survives more than one summer melt season. Some scientists suspected that this loss was due entirely to wind pushing the ice out of the Arctic Basin -- a process that scientists refer to as...

Researchers at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) have devised a new technique"”using a sheet of carbon just one atom thick"”to visualize the structure of molecules. The technique, which was used to obtain the first direct images of how water coats surfaces at room temperature, can also be used to image a potentially unlimited number of other molecules, including antibodies and other biomolecules.A paper describing the method and the studies of water layers appears...

Soft rime is a type of milky white ice that forms when water droplets in light freezing fog freeze to the outer surfaces of objects. This formation usually occurs with light winds or in calm conditions. The rime forms to the windward (side facing the wind) side of solid objects. Soft rime is similar in appearance to hoar frost, but is formed differently. Soft rime is formed when vapor first condenses to liquid droplets and then attaches to the surface. Hoar frost is formed when water vapor is...

Hard rime is a type of white ice that forms when water droplets found in fog freeze to the outer surfaces of objects. Hard rime is most often found on trees atop mountains and high ridges in winter, when low clouds cause freezing fog. This fog freezes along the windward (sides facing the wind) side of trees, buildings, and any other solid objects. The air temperature needed for hard rime to form is less than 29 degrees Fahrenheit and typically higher than 17 degrees Fahrenheit. High wind is...

Clear Ice refers to a solid precipitation that forms when air temperature is between 32 degrees and 27 degrees Fahrenheit and there is a presence of super-cooled, large drops of water (from freezing fog). A rapid build up and slow dispersing of latent heat of fusion favors conditions for the formation of the transparent ice. A similar phenomenon occurs when freezing rain or drizzle hit's a surface and freezes causing what is known as glaze. When clear ice forms on the ground, it is...
