Lakes are important habitats for many species and have always been extensively used by people for fishing and transport, as sources of drinking water and energy; and for recreation. The physical processes governing the water motion at and beneath the lake surface are described in this book. Fundamental physics using mathematical formulations, (2) measuring techniques and (3) analytical/numerical modelling are applied to describe barotropic and baroclinic linear and nonlinear oscillations, temperature and mass distributions, seasonal changes of the water stratification, wind-induced currents and many other phenomena related to physical limnology. A large number of field, laboratory and numerical examples are used to support the pertinent equations.
