glaze ice[′glāz ‚īs]
a layer of solid ice formed on the ground and on objects (for example, the trunks and branches of trees, telegraph wires) when supercooled drops of fog or rain (below 0° C) freeze on them. Glazing usually occurs at an atmospheric temperature of from 0° to —3° C (sometimes even lower), mainly on the windward side of the object. The crust of ice may be as much as several centimeters thick and may break branches and wires and destroy crops.
