National Research Program
The overall goal of this research is to broaden our understaning of how lakes interact with the atmosphere on short (diurnal) to long (104 year) time scales and to provide, through appropriate models of lake thermal structure and mixing, methods for invesitigating the effects of climate, climate change, and anthropogenic intervention on lake systems. The models also will be used to investigate the effect of lakes on the atmosphere. Highlights include:
