Title: How nanoscale surface steps promote ice growth on feldspar: microscopy observation of morphology-enhanced condensation and freezing

Abstract

Video microscopy and AFM are used to relate surface topography to a mineral's ability to promote ice growth. On feldspar, abundant as atmospheric dust, basic surface steps can facilitate condensation and freezing when air becomes saturated.
