Abstract

Experiments of ice nucleation by silver iodide were conducted in a cold chamber at various temperatures. The seeded ice crystals were replicated and an examination of the position of AgI nuclei in individual ice crystals was made using an electron microscope. The mechanism of ice nucleation is discussed.
