    The friction coefficients of ice and snow are about 1 order of magnitude lower than the other solid. In order to understand the formation mechanism of the water film, the dynamics of the hydrogen bonding network in the ice surface using the molecular dynamic (MD) calculations are studied. As such, the temperature dependence and the crystal orientation dependence of the vibrational amplitudes of the atoms in the outermost layer of th ice surface is determined by calculating mean-square displacement (MSD).
