Abstract

A new framework for modelling the evolution of the thermal bar system in a lake is presented. The model assumes that the thermal bar is located between two regions: the deeper region, where spring warming leads to overturning of the entire water column, and the near shore shallower region, where a stable surface layer is established. In this model the thermal bar moves out slightly more quickly than predicted by a simple thermal balance. Also, the horizontal extent of the thermal bar region increases as it moves out from the shore.
