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.

LAKE ICE ? THE SIMPLE COMPONENT OF THE CRYOSPHERE
Author : Matti Lepp?ranta
In cold regions, lakes are covered by ice. Seasonally freezing lakes cover a large zone from the latitudes 40?45 to high-polar regions, and the ice thickness can reach ? 2 m. Perennially icecovered lakes are rare, found mainly in northern Canada and in dry valleys of Antarctica. Lake ice differs from other types of floating ice, River, lake, and reservoir ice and Sea ice processes. Lake ice grows as congelation ice and snow-ice while in rivers frazil ice formation is common, and lake ice, in freshwater lakes, has a very low level of impurities compared with Sea ice processes. Lake ice cover forms a stable lid but in rivers and marine basins the motion of ice has major consequences. At extreme, saline lakes have
