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.

MODELLING THE LAKE ICE SEASON FOR CLIMATE INVESTIGATIONS
Author : Matti Lepp?ranta, Yu Yang, Zhijun Li and Bin Cheng
A seasonal lake ice model is employed to examine to impact of climate variability on lake ice phenology, thickness and ice coverage. The freezing date is related to fall air temperature with correlation time scale depending on the lake depth. Ice growth depends primarily on air temperature and snow accumulation. Ice breakup depends on the maximum ice and snow thicknesses, solar radiation transfer, and air temperature; the onset of melting is the primary question. Lake ice models have the heat conduction law in their core, and heat is transferred through the boundaries in the ice sheet. Analytical or semi-analytical models are used for scaling
