Abstract
Water level data suitable for tidal analysis may be obtained by the use of mechanical water level recorders mounted on freely floating ice covers providing that auxiliary measurements are made to correct for ice loading from snow accumulation and for the increase in freeboard due to ice growth. The paper describes the selection of suitable sites, techniques for installing recorders and auxiliary measurements.
