    Ice appears in nature in forms as varied as snowflakes, hail, icicles, glaciers, pack ice, and entire polar ice caps. Rime is ice that forms on cold objects when drops of water crystallize on them. (observable in foggy weather, when the temperature drops during night.) Aufeis is layered ice that forms in Arctic and subarctic stream valleys. Ice can also form icicles as water drips and re-freezes. Clathrate hydrates are forms of ice that contain gas molecules trapped within its crystal lattice. Pancake ice is a formation of ice generally created in areas with less calm conditions. Candle Ice develops in columns perpendicular to the surface of a lake.
