The ability to understand the formation mechanism and structure of defects in crystalline and amorphous silica is of fundamental importance in earth sciences. This can be achieved by first–principles molecular dynamics. In the case of the interaction between water and quartz, it is found that germinal silanol species dominate the surface.
