The effect of a static magnetic field on the solidification behavior (critical supercooling, latent period, etc.) of water drops under atmospheric conditions was studied by thermal analysis. The critical supercooling was found to decrease with increasing magnetic field. In fields stronger than 0.5 T, supercooling is negligible and equilibrium solidification takes place.
