What Does Salt Do To Ice?

Salt has a very pronounced effect on ice. When it covers the ice, it melts its top layer. It creates salty solution. The freezing temperature of such a solution is lower than that of water. This solutions covers up the ice and causes its further melting. So, basically, salt melts the ice. This process stops only when the concentration of salt in the solution reduces to minimal amount.
