Both analytical and experimental investigations are employed to provide basic information concerning water movement in the Lake. The knowledge and experience acquired in the course of this study should improve our capability to construct and operate rotating hydraulic models. This information should also assist in the overall water quality management of the Lake. The studies reported here deal with the idealized conditions of zero wind stress (including the inflow of the Detroit River and the outflow of the Niagara River) and, under this same flow condition, with the superposition of a uniform westerly wind over the surface of the Lake. The water mass is isothermal and variations in density are assumed absent. Under these conditions, investigations of the circulation patterns were conducted. Also studied was the oscillation of the entire water mass in the model lake. In particular, attention was given to the transient effect that this mass oscillation had on the otherwise steady-state circulation pattern and its effect on the mixing and dilution of waste discharges into the lake.
