As part of the activities of the International Association for the Properties of Water and Steam, all reliable sources of experimental data on the thermodynamic properties of ordinary (light) water and steam have been collected and converted to common temperature, pressure, volume, mass and heat scales. The data are grouped by state or phase: ideal-gas properties; sublimation and melting curves; saturation properties; properties of liquid water at ambient pressure; thermodynamic properties of the single-phase state; and those of metastable states. In each category, a subdivision is made by property. Properties include the volume, enthalpy, heat capacities, sound velocity, internal energy and Joule-Thomson and related coefficients. The total data collection contains approximately 16 000 data points and covers a century of experimental work at temperatures from 253 to 1273 K and pressures up to 1 GPa. This report characterizes the data and gives the literature references. The actual data collection is available in computerized form.
