The purpose of this study is to assess the ability of the artificial neural network (ANN) models in estimating river ice thickness using easy available climate data. A site specific ANN models were developed for two hydrometric stations at two rivers in Alberta (Canada). The ANN models were found to adequately estimate ice thickness. Ways to improve the(More)
