Ice Information

Eastern Lake Erie Ice

Under the auspices of the International Niagara Working Committee of the International Joint Commission, ice cover data is collected to assess the ice conditions on Lake Erie and the Niagara River.  At the beginning of the ice season, the ice cover for Lake Erie is evaluated through satellite observations.  Ice reconnaissance flight and surveys are undertaken during the later part of the ice season when more detailed information is required.  Ice conditions are reassessed every 1 to 4 weeks throughout the ice season.

Information on ice cover conditions on all the Great Lakes can be found at the following links:
