Abstract River ice jams often lead to disastrous floods, since the sudden failure of a major jam is like a small-scale dam break, producing violent ice runs and rapidly rising water levels. Although the resulting flood wave attenuates as it travels downstream, water levels can rebuild again if the ice run is stalled even briefly. Because of the rapid development of high water, it is highly desirable to be able to forecast ice jam events. However, the advancement of knowledge of these events is… CONTINUE READING
