Date: February 13, 2020
Time: 5:30 PM - 7:30 PM MST
A presentation by: Edward Kempema, Ph.D. Senior Research Scientist, University of Wyoming Anchor ice forms underwater and attaches to the beds of rivers, lakes, and seas in cold regions. It is a fascinating and poorly understood phenomenon. Dr. Kempema, who has studied ice for 40 years, will discuss the conditions leading to anchor ice formation, distribution in small mountain rivers, and impacts on mountain river systems - including winter flooding - and what potential management practices are available. This presentation is part of Roaring Fork Conservancy's Brooksher Watershed Institute.
