Frank, is that a bill board tarp? If so please give out a report on condition if you don't mind.

Thanks

Is that tarp white or did you go with the standard blue? I know the white will reflect more heat up and away from anything below it. The blue ones I've used, even set high off the ground still get pretty warm underneath, but in this regard, merely providing shade either would probably work great. Really interested in seeing how this works out. Please keep us updated.

Tracy, I decided to go with higher quality stuff for my first try. Supposed to be waterproof, sunlight resistant, tear resistant. Designed to keep hay cool, silver color.

I have no idea if it will work out, but will keep you in the loop. Probably will need to put some Styrofoam under it in spots so it doesn't collect rainwater or get waterlogged.

Mike, thanks for the encouraging words. I'll try to post some pics when it arrives & is deployed. I'd worry about cutting off interaction between water & air if it were too large, but doubt this will be an issue given relatively small size.

I'm considering placing some kind of porous cloth, such as landscaping fabric, on the surface of my pond this fall and winter. We'll see if that helps keep an area ice free and even warmer. I'll use something porous so that if that is the only ice-free spot on the pond, there will be potentially some oxygen and other gaseous exchange.

We live back in on a gravel road. Each winter after a few several inches of snow falls, I may use 4 wheel drive to get out our driveway and out the gravel road to the blacktop highway. On a sunny day, I'm often amazed that the paved road will be completely free of snow and may even be drying off, whereas the gravel still has inches of snow on it. Our darkly colored cars will be snow free long before the melting starts on my white truck.


Its called the black matter effect. In the winter it will effect even posts in the snow. Post heats up and will radiate heat melting the snow close to the post.

I got my silver tarp! Can't wait to deploy it. Originally I was thinking about putting it parallel to a main lake shoreline, but now am considering a shallow back bay that is filling up with chara. Maybe the shade will slow or stop this process, as well as cooling a hot area.
