Jaccards' theory describes the movement of both ionic and Bjerrum defects in ice. Standard descriptions of the theory are based on a chain model describing the movement of these defects along well-oriented chains of water molecules. However, this model contains several fundamental contradictions and does not result in the exact equations. We present an alternative model based on the electrodiffusion of the defects. The polarisation of the ice specimen favours these defects orientations that…

As ice belongs to the most common substances, i t has aroused the interest of the scientists for a long time, but questions pertaining to certain of its' properties could be elucidated only in recent

An improved formulation of Jaccard’s theory of the electric properties of ice

In the standard derivation of Jaccard’s theory of the electric properties of ice, no fundamental distinction is made between bound and free charges. This leads to some didactical problems like the ad

Generalized dielectric permittivity of ice

The generalized dielectric permittivity describes the electric response of both bound charges (normal dielectric constant) and free charges (conductivity). The generalized dielectric permittivity of

Screening of an Electric Field in Water

The screening of an electric field in water has been studied taking into account correlations between protons, which are described by the ice rules. It is shown that the problem has two

Polarization processes in the ice lattice

The theory of electrical properties of ice by Jaccard is reviewed. Using a matrix notation it is shown that the theory can be extended to a larger class of defects and some discrepancies with an

Thermoelectric effects in ice crystals

Starting from the phenomenological equations which describe the currents of the four specific ice lattice defects (OH3+, OH−, doubly occupied and vacant hydrogen bonds), the electrochemical and the

Polarization processes in the ice lattice

The results of both theories are compared. This gives the possibility to interpret terms of the one theory in terms of the other. The comparison suggests also that the ice lattice can be interpreted
