We present the complete intermolecular dynamical spectrum of liquid water, by merging the data sets from femtosecond nonlinear-optical polarization spectroscopy with the depolarized, Bose-Einstein corrected Raman spectrum to cover the frequency range from 0-1200 cm-1. The impulse response function for liquid water at room temperature is calculated, including all of the intermolecular motions.
