gmx hydorder computes the tetrahedrality order parameters around a given atom. Both angle an distance order parameters are calculated. See P.-L. Chau and A.J. Hardwick, Mol. Phys., 93, (1998), 511-518. for more details.

gmx hydorder calculates the order parameter in a 3d-mesh in the box, and with 2 phases in the box gives the user the option to define a 2D interface in time separating the faces by specifying parameters -sgang1 and -sgang2 (it is important to select these judiciously).
