AbstractAn unusual humped formation of floating ice, about 10 m. high, 100 m. wide and 1,200 m. long, was observed on the Ottawa River, Canada. Some characteristics of this formation are described. The cause of the humps was found to be frazil ice deposited in a trench about 90 m. wide, 90 m. deep and 1,200 m. long. The frazil ice was formed in rapids up-stream from the humps.
