This density maximum must be -I guess- for a fixed pressure of how many (bars|Mpa, atm) ? --Noe 12:36, 20 November 2008 (CET)

Quite true; for different isobars the temperature at which the maximum in density occurs in the liquid phase varies slightly (the temperature of maximum in density decreases with increasing pressure). I do not have any values to hand at the moment. -- Carl McBride (talk) 12:45, 20 November 2008 (CET)
Having taken a look at the book Felix Franks "Water A matrix of life" (Table 3.5) no pressure is given. However, for example, in the paper by Vega et al. (Ref. 5) the pressure was 1 bar. -- Carl McBride (talk) 12:51, 20 November 2008 (CET)
