As winter approaches and ponds and lakes begin to freeze over, pedestrians need to be aware of thin ice. While lakes and ponds offer opportunities for ice skating and other activities, individuals need to be able to judge whether the ice is thick enough.
Making this judgment, however, is diffcult because ice thickness is determined by a number of factors. The thickness and strenght is affected by the depth of the water, the chemistry of the water, and other climate factors.
