[Morphology of artificial snow crystals from -4°C to -40°C using a convection chamber with the "FINEDEW" chilled mirror hygrometer] / Akio Murai, and 3 others.

Title: [Morphology of artificial snow crystals from -4°C to -40°C using a convection chamber with the "FINEDEW" chilled mirror hygrometer] / Akio Murai, and 3 others.
Translated title: Morphology of artificial snow crystals from -4°C to -40°C using a convection chamber with the "FINEDEW" chilled mirror hygrometer.
Author(s): Murai, Akio.
Date: 2012.
Language: Japanese.
In: Seppyo : Journal of the Japanese Society of Snow and Ice. (2012.), Vol. 74(1) (2012)
Abstract: Investigates snow crystal morphology, presenting 33 photos and new type diagram based on relative humidity RHI in atmospheric phase. Crystals mostly generate from ice saturation level to water saturation level from -4°C to -40°C. Close to ice saturation level in same temperature range, only columnar and thick plate crystal types form. When humidity increases, crystals develop to shape according to temperature. Below -35°C and over 105% RHI, a variety of shapes, including polycrystals, form. Crystal formation below ice saturation level may rely on small supercooled droplets in convection chamber. Growth rates clearly relate to RHI for needle, dendritic, and crossed-plate types at temperatures above -30°C, but not for sector plate and hexagonal plate types, or crossed-plate types below -30°C.
