Metamorphism which results from one or (more commonly) more cycles of melting followed by refreezing. One sequence of melting conditions followed by freezing conditions is called a melt-feeze cycle. This is usually diurnal with melt occuring starting in mid-morning or early aftrenoon and freezing starting when the sun goes down. A period of melt-freeze metamorphism leads to corn snow.
