Abstract: This paper presents the development of a state-of-the-art comprehensive river ice simulation system CRISSP. The system would be applicable to a wide range of river ice engineering needs, including hydropower operations, ice jam floods, inland navigation, water transfer, and ice related environmental and ecological problems. It will consist of a one-dimensional model and a two-dimensional model with user interfaces. The river ice processes to be modeled include: water temperature and ice concentration changes, frazil and anchor ice evolution, surface ice transport and cover formation, undercover transport and frazil jams, thermal growth and decay of ice cover, breakup and surface ice jams.
