AbstractThe long axes of ice grains were oriented parallel to the direction of heat flow. A random c-axis orientation, determined by an etching technique, appeared to exist. In some adjacent crystals the c-axes were as much as 45 degrees apart. This disorder seems to be consistent with the disorderly distribution of clay particles in the ice lens.
