Spring River Ice Breakup Monitoring in the Mackenzie Delta, Canada

Oblique digital aerial photographs and observation notes were taken from a small fixed-wing aircraft. The photographs were georeferenced using a handheld GPS device and synched using software that syncs the time of the photograph with the GPS time. All photographs are 8-10 megapixels in resolution and are in JPEG format. The photographs document the progression of the spring break up of the river ice on the channels of the Mackenzie Delta in late May, 2008. Particular attention was paid to the large ice jam which formed in the Middle Channel in the central delta, and the smaller jam which formed near Inuvik in the east channel. GPS track logs are also available for all flight paths.
