We test how well the picture applies to more diffuse and quiescent clouds where the formation of the first layers of ice mantles can be witnessed. Medium-resolution near-infrared spectra are obtained toward background field stars behind the Pipe Nebula. The water ice absorption is positively detected at 3.0um in seven lines of sight out of 21 sources for which observed spectra are successfully reduced. The peak optical depth of the water ice is significantly lower than those in Taurus with the same AV. The source with the highest water-ice optical depth shows CO ice absorption at 4.7um as well. The fractional abundance of CO ice with respect to water ice is 16+7-6%, and about half as much as the values typically seen in low-mass star-forming regions. A small fractional abundance of CO ice is consistent with some of the existing simulations. Observations of CO2 ice in the early diffuse phase of a cloud play a decisive role in understanding the switching mechanism between polar and apolar ice formation.

Note (1): by Roman-Zuniga et al. (2010, Cat. J/ApJ/725/2232) with color excess technique. Note (2): calculated by multiplying AV by the factor 0.112 (Rieke & Lebofsky, 1985ApJ...288..618R). Note (3): obtained by comparing the observed SpeX spectra with the templates spectra of IRTF Spectral Library (Rayner et al., 2009ApJS..185..289R) Note (4): obtained by comparing SED with stellar model by Bressan et al. (2012MNRAS.427..127B). Note (5): The CO ice spectra at 4.7um are obtained by NIRSPEC at Keck II telescope for the sources in which the water ice is positively detected (#2, 6, 15, 1, 8, 7, 14). Other upper limits are based on SpeX/IRTF observations. Note (6): Broad absorption solution without the short-wavelength shoulder 4.655-4.665um included in the continuum (see Sect. 2.2.3). If the shoulder is counted as a continuum, the column density is reduced to N(CO)=(6.4±3.3)x1016cm-2.
