Ice jams along rivers cause flooding, scouring, injuries and loss of life, and structural and environmental damage; they are a major hazard across the northern United States (US). Communities need data about ice jam locations and frequencies, as well as information about developing ice jams that might threaten lives and property.
This project will enable individuals to collect real-time information about ice jams.
