The fate of river water entering a lake remains an uncertainty in many important water resource questions. I will describe a field campaign which investigated the transport and mixing of a river inlet into Lake Iseo, Italy. I will also discuss laboratory experiments which examined how large inflows modify the stratification in a lake and models suggested by these experiments.

This talk is part of the Fluid Mechanics (CUED) series.
