Ice jam configuration : second generation model / by S. Beltaos and J. Wong.: En13-5/90-65E-PDF

"A numerical model, designed to compute the configuration of ice Jams in natural streams, is described and tested with a unique field data set. This model, called RIVJAM, is a generalized and more robust version of an algorithm developed earlier to study ice characteristics near their toe (downstream end). This knowledge is important with respect to how ice jams are held in place and whether extensive grounding is likely. In turn, this is useful in assessing ice Jam stability and removal procedures"--Management perspective.
