A simple, one-dimensional model of the stratification in a small, ice-covered lake is developed. It is shown that the heat flux from the sediments gives rise to a stable stratification and an organized circulation pattern. Data from a field study are compared with the predictions of the model. The good agreement found suggests that the buoyancy layer at the nonhorizontal boundaries is essential in modeling the thermal circulation in this type of lake.
