Abstract : Studies were made of ice formed by accretion over a wide range of controlled conditions to ascertain the influence of the wind speed, ambient temperature, droplet diameter and liquid water concentration in the supercooled cloud, and the siz of the accreting object. It is shown that these parameters determine the time of freezing and impact momentum of the supercooled droplets, and thereby also the density and structure of the deposits. Application is made to the growth of hail. (Author)
