Measurements of the dielectric constant and the effective parallel conductance of a specimen of anomalous water suggest that anomalous water is a hydrosol consisting of finely divided particulate matter suspended in ordinary water. Scanning electron micrography confirms the presence of particulate matter. These new experimental data provide an alternative explanation for the properties of anomalous water.
