Description: Special Report
Abstract: The climatic conditions and chronology of ice breakup on the Meade River, Alaska, in 1966 are reported and documented photographically. These observations and the interpretation of aerial photography suggest that ice damming, flooding, and dam release are the typical patterns of breakup that progress repetitiously downstream. The implications of ice breakup on plant succession on river bars and on channel erosion are discussed.
