Border Ice Development on the Susitna River, Alaska

Border Ice Development during freeze-up on the Susitna River, Alaska, November 6, 2013

Another awesome photo by PhD student Julia Blackburn, taken during freeze-up on the Susitna River, Alaska. The constriction of the river due to the rocky outcrop on the right, and the development of border ice on the left, make this location a good candidate for surface ice bridging to occur during the freeze-up process.
