The circulation of Lake Ontario during the summer of 1982 and the winter of 1982/83 / T.J. Simons and W.M. Schertzer.: En36-502/171E-PDF

"This study provides a detailed description and analysis of nearshore current reversals related to wind forcing and alongshore propagation of topographic and baroclinic wave phenomena; cross-lake variations of currents in terms of wind forcing, cross-lake depth variations, and effects of friction and diffusion in shallow water; and the relative effects of wind-induced upwelling, alongshore Kelvin waves, and small-scale mixing on the nearshore thermal regime in spring, summer and fall. The current distributions are shown to have strong implications on water quality and fate and pathways of toxic contaminants in the aquatic system"--Abstract.
