The temperature dependence of the viscosity of water in the range of 240-340 K has been studied by the molecular dynamics method. The analysis of the data has revealed an anomaly in the behavior of the viscosity of water near 0 degrees C. The appearance of this anomaly has been attributed to the formation of cluster structures at a decrease in the temperature.
