    The word "stream", as you all undoubtedly know, has many nautical connotations. According to HO 220, it may be used in connection with ice to describe .... "A long narrow area of drift ice, usually consisting of small fragments detached from the main belt, and drifting under the influence of wind or current." ... My copy of this pub is dated 1956.

    Brad, you wrote:
    "Dennett has that as "stream" ice.  It may very well be that
    word, but H.O.Pub 609 "Functional Glossary of Ice Terminology" 1952
    has no entry for "stream ice".  "
    If you go to the Google Books Advanced Search page and enter "stream
    ice" in the exact phrase box and then set the max date to, say, 1920, you
    will find a number of hits that define this term. Maybe it's no longer
    accepted terminology?
