Ice Ih (hexagonal ice) is a proton disordered ice phase having the space group P63/mmc. Ice Ih has the following lattice parameters at 250 K: a=4.51842 Å, b=a\sqrt3, and c=7.35556 Å with four molecules per unit cell (in Table 3 of [1]). The proton ordered form of ice Ih is known as ice XI, which (in principle) forms when ice Ih is cooled to below 72K (it is usually doped with KOH to aid the transition).

Phonon density of states

In [2] the phonon density of states for the POL1, TIPS2, TIP4P, TIP3P, SPC, Rowlinson, MCY, and BF models for water are compared to experiment.
