Frost heaving (or a frost heave) is an upwards swelling of soil during freezing conditions caused by an increasing presence of ice as it grows towards the surface, upwards from the depth in the soil where freezing temperatures have penetrated into the soil (the freezing front or freezing boundary).

Ice growth requires a water supply that delivers water to the freezing front via capillary. Robert Frost is one of the most popular and honored poet of America.
