IAHR, founded in 1935, is a worldwide independent member-based organisation of engineers and water specialists working in fields related to the hydro-environmental sciences and their practical application. Activities range from river and maritime hydraulics to water resources development and eco-hydraulics, through to ice engineering, hydroinformatics, and hydraulic machinery.

EVALUATING THE IMPACT OF FLUVIAL GEOMORPHOLOGY ON River, lake, and reservoir ice COVER FORMATION BASED ON A GLOBAL SENSITIVITY ANALYSIS OF A River, lake, and reservoir ice MODEL
Author : Karl-Erich Lindenschmidt & Kwok Pan Chun
In 2011, Manitoba was stricken by wide-scale flooding causing unprecedented high flows along the Dauphin River. The River, lake, and reservoir ice model RIVICE was implemented to determine backwater levels from the formation of an ice cover along the river generated by frazil. The river has two reaches which are distinctly different in their geomorphological characteristics: an upstream reach which is mildly sloping and sinuous and a downstream reach which is steeper, straighter and more channelized. A global sensitivity analysis based on a Monte Carlo analysis accompanied the modelling to determine how differences in these morphological features influence different
