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.

REMOTE SENSING OF LAKE ICE: ADVANCES AND OUTLOOK
Author : Claude R. Duguay
Lakes are sensitive indicators of climate variability and change. They also play an important role in the energy and water balance at local and regional scales, influencing climate and weather. One key variable that is sensitive to climate conditions and that influences lake-atmosphere interactions in cold environments is ice cover. Its presence/absence and thickness have an impact on energy/heat exchanges with the overlying atmosphere. Ground-based observations and lake models are useful for studying the response and role of ice cover in lake-climate interactions. Satellite remote sensing observations are increasingly being used as a complement to these
