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.

THE IMPACT OF AIR TEMPERATURE AND PRECIPITATION ON FORMATION OF LAKE ICE IN NORTHERN FINLAND
Author : Bin Cheng , Ting Qin , Lixin Wei Anna Kontu , Henna-Reetta Hannula , Timo Vihma and Xiaomin Ye
The formation of lake ice strongly depends on the heat exchange at the ice-water interface, the radiative and turbulent heat fluxes at the ice/snow surface, as well as on precipitation. In Northern Finland, snowfall is guaranteed for each winter season, so the lake ice is composed by columnar ice (ice formed via bottom growth) and granular ice (snow-ice, superimposed ice). The impact of air temperature and precipitation on lake ice formation is investigated. The meteorological measurements from Sodanlyl? weather station, northern Finland was used as external forcing to run a snow and ice model (HIGHTSI) for a climatological period 1980/1981 ?
