This chapter describes the structure of ordinary ice and what is known of the structures of its polymorphs. It then outlines the thermodynamic, electrical, and spectroscopic properties of ice, and relates them to its crystal structure and to characteristics of the water molecule. The chapter closes with a discussion of hydrogen bonding and its role in determining the nature of ice.
