Abstract: Particle-image velocimetry is presented herein as a useful experimental and field technique for determining and mapping whole fields of ice and water velocities. The technique, which is becoming extensively used in other applications of fluid mechanics, lends itself very well for this purpose. The present paper demonstrates application of the technique for a hydraulic model of ice movement through a confluence of two rivers.
