Wikipedia ice (countable and uncountable; plural ices)

  1. (uncountable) Water in frozen (solid) form.
    • 1882, Popular Science Monthly Volume 20, The Freezing of a Salt Lake
      It seems that in this lake (Kupalnoze) there is such a diffusion of salt toward the lower stratum of water, even before the freezing begins, otherwise it would be difficult to explain how colder water might remain on the surface, were it not for the greater amount of salt in the lower strata. It has always been difficult to explain how ice is formed on the surface of oceans while the temperature of maximum density is lower than that of cogelation, and the observations on this lake were instituted in the hope that they might throw light upon the subject. The lake, however, contains too much salt to afford a sure standard of comparison with oceanic water.
