The similitude problems in modeling flow in stratified lakes was investigated both theoretically and experimentally. Models with transparent sides were built with representative inlets. Using salt solutions of varying density and coloration, the establishment of stratified conditions, the control and modeling of inlet flows, and the use of visualization methods were developed. Special attention was given to the problem of vertical distortion: in the modeling of lakes, it is necessary to use a different depth scale than the horizontal length scale. Too little vertical depth in the model allows boundary layer effects to dominate; too much depth and distortion may invalidate the similitude of the model to the lake. Two models with different amounts of vertical distortion were built and compared. (Modified author abstract)
