Abstract : The hypothesis of existence of a quasiliquid film on the surface of ice at temperatures below its melting point (T(melt)) was first stated by M. Faraday for explanation of a number of mechanical properties of ice. In this report the authors describes the use of nuclear magnetic resonance to discover the nature of the surface of ice. This method makes it possible to obtain the most complete information about the degree of mobility of the molecules. (Author)
