AbstractThe results of studies on the relation between freeze-up, break-up and weather conditions for a small fresh-water lake in the Ottawa area are reported. Techniques using air temperature records for estimating when a solid ice-cover will form on the lake are investigated. A formula using weather records is also developed for estimating the time taken for ice to melt from the lake. The usefulness of these relationships for estimating "freeze-up" and "break- up" dates for rivers and lakes is discussed.
