Short summary
On the basis of supercooled SHG spectroscopy, I report molecular-level evidence for the existence of one- and two-step deposition freezing depending on the surface type and the supersaturation conditions. In addition, immersion freezing shows a transient ice phase with a lifetime of c. 1 min. This study provides new insights into atmospheric processes and can impact various industrial and research branches, particularly climate change, weather modification, and tracing water in the hydrosphere.
