Abstract:

The thermal bar has been studied in a quantitative manner in a laboratory model. The temperature and velocity fields are similar to those observed in the Great Lakes. The effects of variation of heat input, bottom slope, and initial temperature were studied. A linear physical model gives a reasonable first approximation to the speed of the thermal bar in both the experimental model and the Great Lakes. Author
