Rationalization of anomalous devitrification relationships between hyperquenched vitreous water (and related ASW forms) and vitrified aqueous solutions requires the assumption that the viscosity-temperature relationship of water near but above its glass transition temperature is that of a "strong" liquid, like SiO2. This would support Speedy's claim that water II (ASW above Tg) is a separate and distinct state of liquid water. The conclusion is supported by analysis of low-temperature data on water-swollen polymers (hydrogels).
