Flashcards in Lesson 305 Icing Deck (2):
What are the five factors involved in the formation, type and intensity of icing? Briefly describe.
Temperature: icing requires sub-zero temperatures
Moisture: the greater the liquid content the greater the probability and intensity of icing.
Nuclei: the greater the amount of ice nuclei the lower the threat of icing.
Lift: stronger the lift, bigger the droplet size.
Stability of the air: upward motion will form and support more abundant and larger water droplets.
