Fig. 10 Time-sequence illustration of a growing snow crystal, obtained by a computer simulation. A circular plate crystal, which is an initial shape in this simulation, grows into a hexagonal plate, and finally the hexagonal dendrite develops. Numbers on the right hand side indicate the growth times in second. Supersaturations of environment are 0.17 and 0.34 for (a) and (b), respectively.
