Frost

Frost is the condensation and freezing of moisture in the air. It is formed when the temperature of a solid surface is below the freezing point of water and also below the frost point. The size of frost crystals varies depending on the time they have been building up and the amount of water vapor available.

Frost crystals are translucent, but scatter light in many directions, so that a coating of frost appears white. There are many types of frost, such as radiation and window frost.

Frost may damage crops or reduce future crop yields, hence farmers may take measures to prevent it forming. Tender plants can suffer extensive damage or die when exposed to frost.
