The electron-impact excitation of water has been reinvestigated over the energy range 9-180 eV. Energy-dependent pressure effects have been observed. It is suggested that these are due to production of one or more triplet states of water which undergo collisionally assisted predissociation. Threshold energies for these processes have been determined. © 1985.
