Resumen

We perform computer simulations of the quasi-liquid layer of ice formed at the ice/vapor interface close to the ice Ih/liquid/vapor triple point of water. Our study shows that the two distinct surfaces bounding the film behave at small wave-lengths as atomically rough and independent ice/water and water/vapor interfaces. For long wave-lengths, however, the two surfaces couple, large scale parallel fluctuations are inhibited and the ice/vapor interface becomes smooth. Our results could help explaining the complex morphology of ice crystallites.
