His lordly ships of ice
Glisten in the sun;
On each side, like pennons wide,
Flashing crystal streamlets run.

I see the long ravine expand
To where the ice-world's crystal lines
Define the realm of Switzerland.

Imperishable in their shining sleep
Is thine; and all the wan despairs that weep
With tears of ice and crystal, cannot break

The lunar peaks of ice and crystal, he,
Some night of agonized eternity
With brazen teeth shall gnaw thy fettered brain.

Growth rates and growth forms of ice crystals grown from the vapor phase,” by T. Gonda and T.
A Critical Look at Ice Crystal Growth Data
Thus even the qualitative results in this paper may not be reliable. “The growth of small ice crystals in gases of high and low pressures,” by Takehiko Gonda, J.
A Critical Look at Ice Crystal Growth Data
Ice crystals were grown in free-fall in gases of helium and argon at various pressures from 0.2 to 15 bar, and at temperatures of -7 C and -15 C.
A Critical Look at Ice Crystal Growth Data
These data show the well-known relation between morphology and temperature, in this case at a single supersaturation near the water supersaturation level. “Linear growth rates of ice crystals grown from the vapor phase,” by D.
A Critical Look at Ice Crystal Growth Data
Ice crystals were grown on a substrate at various temperatures and supersaturations, and with various background gas pressures.
A Critical Look at Ice Crystal Growth Data
But all the quantitative data to date are questionable, in my opinion. One might expect that ice crystal growth measurements would not be difficult, but this is apparently not the case.
A Critical Look at Ice Crystal Growth Data
Future workers should give considerable thought into what role these effects are playing in their measurements. 3.1 Systematic Errors in Ice Crystal Growth Measurements Diffusion.
A Critical Look at Ice Crystal Growth Data
Since ice crystal growth measurements are typically accurate to no better than a factor of two, one needs to use small crystals and low background pressures to obtain a reliable determination of α. Neighboring Crystals.
A Critical Look at Ice Crystal Growth Data
The growth of an ice crystal can be reduced by the presence of neighboring crystals, since these all act as water vapor sinks.
A Critical Look at Ice Crystal Growth Data
When growing ice crystals in a cloud of water droplets, it is a mistake to assume that the supersaturation is automatically equal to the equilibrium value for liquid water at the cloud temperature.
A Critical Look at Ice Crystal Growth Data
Measurements of ice crystal growth rates must sample a large number of crystals if the results are to be meaningful. Surface Diffusion.
A Critical Look at Ice Crystal Growth Data
Thus surface diffusion remains something of a wild card in understanding ice crystal growth. Avoiding Systematics.
A Critical Look at Ice Crystal Growth Data
While there are obviously many pitfalls that must be avoided when measuring ice crystal growth rates, it is equally obvious that the morphology diagram is robust and reproducible.
A Critical Look at Ice Crystal Growth Data
There are obviously large gaps in our knowledge, and, given the state of the data, future measurements may dramatically alter our picture of the crystal growth dynamics of ice. The morphology diagram remains largely a mystery.
