Abstract: This report provides information on the CRREL Ice Jam Database and its potential use for analyzing ice-related flooding problems. Rivers in the northern United States are subject to ice jams that cause flooding; block hydropower and water supply intakes; delay or stop navigation; damage riverine structures such as locks, dams, bridges, dikes, levees, and wingwalls; and decrease downstream discharge. The lack of readily available information on historical ice events hinders rapid, effective response to ice jam flooding and other ice-related damage. The CRREL Ice Jam Database was developed to provide a centralized record of ice events.
