Abstract : Previous studies indicated that when water-ice phase composition curves are normalized to unit surface area, the unfrozen water content values at given temperatures for the kaolinite/water system are higher than those of other soils and soil constituents. The water-ice phase composition curve for this system has been redetermined using an improved isothermal calorimeter and the earlier curve confirmed. (Modified author abstract)
