CHICAGO, Oct. 25 /PRNewswire/ -- For many people, winter can be a worrisome season. It means stocking up on products that help remove dangerous ice and snow.
Researchers at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) have devised a new techniqueâ€”using a sheet of carbon just one atom thickâ€”to visualize the structure of molecules.
Earth's climate is strongly influenced by the presence of particles of different shapes and origins -- in the form of dust, ice and pollutants -- that find their way into the lowest portion of the atmosphere, the troposphere.
NEW YORK, July 8 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- IntercontinentalExchangeÂ® (NYSE: ICE), a leading operator of regulated global futures exchanges, clearing houses and over-the-counter (OTC) markets, today announced the five year anniversary of the launch of the ICE Link product, which is the leading affirmation and novation consent platform for credit default swaps (CDS).
The secret life of water just got weirder.
LAS VEGAS, June 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Minus5 Ice Lounge, who opened America's first permanent ice lounge, is showcasing their innovative concept, The Minus5 Igloo, this summer at Power Plant Live! in Baltimore, Maryland.
Scientists have discovered that changes in the amount of ice floating in the polar oceans are causing sea levels to rise.
High in the Mackenzie Mountains, scientists are finding a treasure trove of ancient hunting tools being revealed as warming temperatures melt patches of ice that have been in place for thousands of years.
The US National Snow and Ice Data Center reports that the extent of sea ice over the Arctic Ocean grew until the last day of March, which is the latest the annual melting season has begun in 31 years of satellite records.

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...
