AbstractA combination of reverse Monte Carlo, molecular dynamics, and lattice dynamics simulations were used to obtain structural and thermodynamic data for low-density amorphous ice. A thermodynamically discontinuous transformation to a phase with properties and a structure consistent with supercooled liquid water is found to occur at ?130 K. Quantum corrections have a profound effect on thermodynamic properties and the location of important thermodynamic points in the water phase diagram.
