Abstract:

In the report the author gives the fragmentary results of occasional observations stretched out over a period of five years. Topics discussed include folding of the ice, and Shore ridges, Everyone is familiar with cracks. In addition to these cracks other peculiar transformations occur in the ice. After having reached a certain thickness the ice rises in the form of a long fold along the shore or across the lakes, spasmodically shaking the whole surface in the process. Ice folding is caused by the release of stress differences within the ice.
