Anchor Ice Release

 

Anchor Ice Release on the River Dee, NB (Canada), Nov. 24, 2011

PhD student Jennifer Nafziger got this cool picture of anchor ice using a time-lapse camera.  The anchor ice the fuzzy stuff that looks like big boulders on the river bed over to the right of the border ice.  It started to release about an hour later as you can see from the photo below.

Here below is what the river looks like with no ice…

Note – we’re going to take a little vacation on the River Ice Photo Blog – but we’ll be back with new photos on Sept 7.
