Fish Antifreeze Proteins and the Creep of Polycrystalline Ice

John W. Glen, David J. Ives

Creep curves obtained from the polycrystalline ice samples containing low concentrations of antifreeze glycopeptides (AFGPs) do not show the re-accelerating or tertiary creep that is found in pure ice samples. Previous work has shown that AFGPs inhibit grain-boundary migration in ice and the present results are consistent with this, as tertiary creep is associated with nucleation and growth of new ice grains.
