The Committee on River Ice Processes and the Environment > CRIPE is a sub-committee of the Canadian Geophysical Union - Hydrology Section. Our members include engineers and scientists with diverse technical and professional backgrounds from around the world who share and interest in river ice.
About River Ice > Ice plays a dominant role in the hydrologic regime of Northern rivers. Ice jam floods pose the most serious risks, when loss of property and lives can occur. Many aspects of river ice science are not yet well-understood.
Bi-Annual Workshop > Our workshops provide a forum to share knowledge and advance our collective understanding of river ice processes and their impacts on our society and the environment. Participants include students, researchers, and practitioners from across North America and overseas.
