A GEOSPATIAL MODEL TO DETERMINE PATTERNS IN River, lake, and reservoir ice COVER BREAKUP AND JAMMING BEHAVIOUR
Author : Karl-Erich Lindenschmidt, Apurba Das and Jay Sagin
In the past, both empirical and process-based attempts have been made to predict River, lake, and reservoir ice behaviour, in particular ice cover breakup and ice jamming occurrences. These methods perform with varying and limited success and tend to be site specific. A method is required which can simply estimate the predisposition of river reaches to ice breakup and jamming events. This paper introduces a geospatial modelling approach which can fulfil that task and improve the predictive power of ice cover breakup and ice jamming behaviour. The geospatial model can determine the most vulnerable sections along the studied reaches to such behaviour, which are
