Good start, but.....
This article is a good start, but needs some work. How about some diagrams? For example, to show how a de-icing boot works. And what about these "actuators" mentioned in the article? How, exactly, do they work? What do they look like? It's not clear at all from this article. Some drawings and a more detailed description would be very helpful.

It seems we have three different articles on this topic that could be effectively combined into one article:
I would suggest that we merge all the articles into Atmospheric icing, possibly renaming it to Atmospheric icing conditions.
The FAA website frequently refers to Atmospheric icing conditions and also uses this terminology in the FAR: []
