Ice VI has been produced by shock compression of ice I_h to about 2 GPa. This is the second high-pressure polymorph of water observed in shock loading. These experiments point out the ease with which high-pressure phases can form when ice I_h is impacted. The new shock data, combined with previous static measurements, provide preliminary equation of state parameters for ice VI.
