Abstract : We show that water in equilibrium is not expected to freeze from its surface inward, contrary to the expectation of elementary theories. We do this in two ways; by utilizing a recent calculation of the interfacial energy of the ice-water interface, and by an explicit calculation of the surface free energy of a water-vapor interface which incorporates a film of ice.
