Measurements and Models in Physical Limnology

  • C. H. Mortimer
Part of the International Centre for Mechanical Sciences book series (CISM, volume 286)


Within the compass of six lectures it is manifestly impossible to cover adequately the history of the interplay between field observations and models as well as recent progress and promising future trends in physical limnology. Therefore Section 1 is an annotated bibliography of starting-points or first discoveries within the field of water movements, selected (it must be admitted) on the basis of the lecturer’s experience and interests. This selectivity may explain and perhaps excuse the immodest-seeming citation of his own publications. Section 2 (Recent History and Future Opportunities) will also contribute to history, but will consider in addition some promising future lines of research. The continuity between the lectures will, it is hoped, demonstrate the inseparable continuity between physical limnology and oceanography in particular and geophysical fluid dynamics in general. It is no coincidence, as the bibliography will demonstrate, that many of the recent findings in lakes have been published in oceanographic or geophysical journals and are becoming incorporated into general textbooks (1,2). Some hydrodynamic phenomena and mechanisms -for example those constrained by boundaries- can, in fact, be more easily studied and modelled in lakes than in oceans. For others the reverse is true.
