Record #96661:

Foam-initiated ice covers on small rivers and streams: an observation / R. Ettema, J.K. Johnson, J.A. Schaefer.

Title: Foam-initiated ice covers on small rivers and streams: an observation / R. Ettema, J.K. Johnson, J.A. Schaefer.
Author(s): Ettema, R.
Johnson, J. K.
Schaefer, J. A.
Date: 1989.
In: Cold Regions Science and Technology. (1989.), Vol. 16(1) (1989)
Abstract: Demonstrates that chemicals with propensity to cause foam to form at water surface may initiate and hasten ice-cover formation. These chemicals often result from decay of organic substances or from fertilizers and detergents. However, it is suspected that importance of foam in this respect diminishes with increasing width of river and increased wind fetch.
