EFFECT OF ICE ON SHORE DEVELOPMENT

James H. Zumberge, James T. Wilson

Abstract


During the course of investigations of ice forms on the Great Lakes bordering the state of Michigan, the writers had occasion to observe several shore areas under winter conditions. The following paper is a general consideration of these casual observations and includes suggestions of the probable relationship between ice conditions at the shore line and in the surf zone to the normal shore processes effective during the ice-free year.
