COMMENT
THE TERM "ICE EFFECTS" MEANS THAT RIVER ICE ACCUMULATION IN THE
VICINITY OF THE RIVER GAGE IS ALTERING THE CHANNEL CROSS-SECTION (IN
ADDITION TO INCREASING FRICTION) WHICH PRODUCES HIGHER STAGES THAN
WOULD BE EXPECTED WITHOUT THE RIVER ICE.  THE RELATIONSHIP (RATING)
BETWEEN RIVER FLOW AND GAGE HEIGHT IS NO LONGER VALID.  A STRETCH OF
RIVER DOES NOT HAVE TO BE ICE COVERED TO EXHIBIT ICE EFFECTS.  ICE CAN
FORM ALONG THE SURFACE IN SLOW MOVING SECTIONS, ALONG THE BANKS AND
SIDES OF THE CHANNEL, AND ALSO ON THE CHANNEL BOTTOM (ANCHOR ICE).
ABRUPT FLUCTUATIONS OF SEVERAL FEET ARE QUITE COMMON AND SHOULD BE
EXPECTED DURING EXTENDED COLD SPELLS.
