Dynamic susceptibility measurements on thermally isolated cerium magnesium nitrate show that all lattice oscillators participate in the Orbach spin-lattice relaxation process. The observed environmental influence on the relaxation behaviour when the crystal is in direct contact with liquid helium can be explained with a thermal conduction model.
