Dielectric spectroscopy of polarization phenomena and electromigration kinetics is fraught with discrepancies. The removal of these discrepancies and the generalization of the available data using the theoretical models introduced here allow the basic features of proton relaxation to be revealed. The features of proton relaxation and conduction are established for ice and then extended to more complex structures such as crystalline hydrates and micas. A theory is advanced which allows proton relaxation in hydrogen-bonded crystals to be explained. Relaxation and electromigration mechanisms as well as the types and parameters of relaxators are established and the electretic properties of micas analyzed.
