Summary: The final report is given on laboratory and field studies on ice of both small and large lakes in the Great Lakes area during 1950-53. The 3 main topics discussed are: development of a genetic classification of lake ice; studies of the crystallinity of lake ice from the descriptive and genetic viewpoints; and the thermal push of an ice cover. The 2 main types of ice cover occurring in the area are classified as sheet and agglomeritic ice. Four ice textures were identified: granular, columnar, porphyritic and tabular. Ice push on Wamplers Lake (SE Mich.) amounted to about 2 ft. each winter, averaging about 2 in. each cycle.
