Ice wedging is caused by water freezing and thawing. During this process of the transformation of water into ice, the water expands and the crack in the ground is formed. These cracks are formed duing the winter when the water freezes, it expands and widens the cracks. In summer, when the ice melts, more water collects in the cracks and the process is repeated.
