Sublimation needs heat to work.

Ice and the sun: Sublimation needs a heat source

Detailed Description

Can't sublimate without the heat

Without the addition of energy (heat) to the process, ice would not sublimate into vapor. That is where sunlight plays a large role in the natural world. Water has a physical property called the "heat of vaporization," which is the amount of heat required to vaporize water.
