Hydrology Research Special Issue on

Advances in Monitoring and Modelling of River Ice Processes


Significant advances in field monitoring, laboratory experiments and computational modelling of river ice processes have been made in the past few decades. Different ice processes, such as frazil ice evolution, ice-cover formation, ice-cover break-up and ice jamming, have been studied, as well as linkages of ice regime with water quality and sediment transport. There has also been extensive research on understanding hydro-climatic drivers and controls of river ice processes along with assessments of climatic effects on river ice hydrology.

Recent studies have focused on evaluating the impact of future climate on more complex ice processes, such as ice jamming and ice-jam flooding. These efforts have not only improved process understanding but have also led to innovations in tools, methods and models. This Special Issue acknowledges these recent advances and highlights some of the novel contributions.
