Comparing deposition of rime and condensation growth of hoarfrost on a number of simple geometric solids and complex foliar elements indicates major differences occur in these processes with time. Differences in the rate of rime accumulations are a reflection of the changing effective surface accompanying simplification of form and enlargement of receptor elements. Heat loss through forced convection appears to be a major factor in condensation growth of hoarfrost.
