Abstract

Vertical temperature profiles made in Crater Lake with a modified XBT system show that layers of nearly isothermal water, separated by sheets of relatively high temperature gradient, exist in the upper 265 m of the lake. The microstructure was better developed and more persistent in late than in early summer. The relationship between temperature microstructure and rate of vertical heat transfer in lakes is still undetermined.
