Although ice exhibits a large number of polymorphs, everything from Ice I to Ice VII, the ice in your soft drink or skating rink is Ice I. For completeness sake these different forms of ice have different crystal lattice structures dependent on temperature and pressure. Ice I converts to Ice II or Ice III at about 2 kb , so ice on earth never naturally gets to any denser conviguration.

When ice melts it reaches a temperature when a change of state occurs. During this process all heat going to the ice goes into melting the ice, not raising its temperature. If you were to measure the temperature of a pan filled with ice cooled to below 0o C as you applied heat to it you would see the following stages: # The temperature of the ice rises as the heat is applied until the temperature reaches 0oC. During this period there is no melting. # The ice starts to melt but the temperature of the ice and water stays at 0oC. # Once all the ice is totally melted, the temperature of the water starts to rise as more heat is applied.
