Quasi-isentropic compression may be used to compress water to the phase region of the solid ice VII . We present results including images from gas gun experiments which demonstrate this phase change is limited only to certain surfaces, remaining metastable elsewhere. This metastable water can be compressed up to a threshold pressure whereupon a more sudden, homogeneous phase change occurs.

This talk is part of the Surfaces, Microstructure and Fracture Group series.
