ICE EFFECTS ON BED CHANGES IN ALLUVIAL CHANNELS
Author : Fengbin Huang, Ian Knack, and Hung Tao Shen
Sediment transport and bed change under the influence of River, lake, and reservoir ice is an important phenomenon for alluvial rivers in cold regions. The effect of surface ice on bed changes in alluvial channels is poorly understood although significant changes to the channel bed can occur due to the change in sediment transport rate. Moreover, the changes in bed conditions can affect the ice processes such as the development of ice jams. In this paper, a recently developed two-dimensional depthaveraged sediment transport and bed change model coupled with the surface ice dynamics and thermodynamics is used to examine the interaction of ice cover conditions with the bed change
