Paper Abstract

The results of numerical modeling of plankton biomass dynamics during the evolution of the spring riverine thermal bar in Kamloops Lake, British Columbia, Canada are presented. Investigation of hydrobiological processes is accomplished by using the nutrient–phytoplankton–zooplankton model of Franks et al. (1986). The mathematical model developed takes into account the diurnal variability of the heat fluxes on the surface of a body of water. The results obtained show that the variable heat flux affects the growth of phytoplankton and zooplankton in the upper layers of the lake.
