Thermal Break-up on the Innoko River

21 May 2024

As part of the Fresh Eyes on Ice project ( at University of Alaska Fairbanks we are documenting ice phenology (freeze-up and break-up of ice) on rivers throughout Alaska. The Innoko River flows through amazing country of western Alaska before merging with the Yukon River near Holy Cross. This camera is just downstream from the community of Shageluk where student ice observers at the Innoko River School are monitor river and lake ice conditions as a science team for this project. Video can be viewed on YouTube here.
