Abstract

We report experiences gained with two different models that allow computation of the wind induced barotropic and baroclinic motion in lakes. These are: Nonlinear dispersive two-layered wave model (SPEM) with implicit integration in time. The first is used to demonstrate that nonlinearities affect the fine structure of the thermocline response when the wind input is strong. This is shown by means of computations with a rectangular basin of constant depth and with Lake Constance. The implicit version of SPEM is used to study the Ekman problem and the baroclinic response in a trctangle and in Lake Constance. Both models concentrate upon the role played by diffudion in predicting the current and temperature distribution that is estabished in lakes under direct wind forcing.
