Ice Accretion
1 definitions

This definition has not yet been approved by a moderator.

The process by which a layer of ice ( icing) builds up on solid objects that are exposed to freezing precipitation or to supercooled fog or cloud droplets.

At the earth's surface this usually refers to glaze formation, and the amount of ice can be roughly measured by an ice-accretion indicator. For airborne objects, ice accretion refers to any type of aircraft icing.
