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.

CRYSTAL ORIENTATION IN ICE FROZEN FROM FRESH AND BRACKISH WATER
Author : Stephanie Grothe , Kenneth Hughes , Pat Langhorne
Seven experiments on ice grown in water of differing salinities (0<S<3.0ppt) are undertaken to determine the most important drivers of ice crystal orientation. In six experiments, the water is not stirred, the ice cover is unseeded, and ice grows at approximately 1.6mmhr?1. Under these conditions we find that crystal c-axis inclinations are predominantly vertical at water salinities less than 1.2ppt and predominantly horizontal at salinities greater than 2.0ppt. We also observe a transition from a planar to cellular interface between these salinities. Together, these observations suggest that the change in dominant crystal orientation is explained by
