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 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HEIGHT IS NO LONGER VALID.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.
