Abstract

Two nights of hard black frost, following upon the recent wet weather, has resulted in pieces of chalk resting upon a wet clay soil becoming curiously coated with ice. This occurs only in the case of chalk, other stones—except fragments of brick, which, have a thin veneer of ice on them—and lumps of clay being free from it.
