IAHR 2018 Ice Research and Engineering Award!
Gary Timco, from National Research Council of Canada, wins the IAHR 2018 Ice Research and Engineering Award.

Research accomplishments
Has written a high number of publications on ice-structure interaction, ice modeling,
and ice engineering since starting at the late 70’s. Was the main editor of Cold Regions
Science 2006-2012 and worked 36 years as the principal scientist and group leader on
sea ice mechanics, Arctic shipping regulations, engineering properties of sea ice,
emergency evacuation in ice-covered waters, physical model testing in ice. Timco has
also published over 200 reviewed papers on various ice engineering topics.
Contributions to IAHR Ice Section
Has contributed to several past IAHR conferences, and also published state-of-the-art
reviews on ice engineering, in IAHR conference since (at least) early 80’s.

Brief Resume
Garry received his Bachelor of Science (Physics, First Class Honours), at the Brock
University in St. Catharines, Ontario, Canada in 1973; Master of Science
